Duke Ellington's

Sacred Music COncert

“In the beginning, God!” This declaration repeats through various instruments and voices in Duke Ellington’s liturgical Concert of Sacred Music first performed as part of a festival celebration at the brand-new Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, 1965.  

 

Nearly 60 years later, Ellington’s Sacred Concert has become a cherished tradition for the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, many of whom have played this Earshot Jazz event since the very inception of the band – in fact you could say that SRJO was “born” playing the Sacred Music Concert. Tickets available through Earshot Jazz.

SRJO Blues and the Abstract Truth

“Blues and the Abstract Truth” is a highly acclaimed jazz album released in 1961, and is considered a landmark recording in the realm of post-bop and features an all-star lineup of musicians led by the saxophonist Oliver Nelson. The album’s innovative compositions and superb performances have made it a classic.

 

The album’s title suggests a fusion of the blues, a deeply rooted African American musical form, with more abstract and complex musical ideas. Nelson masterfully combines elements of the blues with intricate harmonies, sophisticated arrangements, and improvisational sections, resulting in a rich and engaging experience. SRJO is thrilled to share this with you.

SRJO Delivers the Jazz messengers

For our final show of the season, SRJO delivers compositions from The Jazz Messengers. The Jazz Messengers played a pivotal role in the evolution of jazz music, providing a platform for young musicians, delivering powerful performances, and contributing to the rich and vibrant history of the genre.

 

As a legendary jazz group formed in the 1950s by drummer Art Blakey, the band became renowned for its influential role in the development of hard bop, a style of jazz that blended elements of bebop with R&B, gospel, and blues.

 

One of the key aspects of The Jazz Messengers was its emphasis on mentorship and nurturing young talent. SRJO continues that jazz tradition of music mentorship through the orchestra, our Jazz Scholars program, and Jazz4Kids events.
