John Richmond Quintet "Celebrating Duke Ellington"

Dynamic North Coast Sax & Clarinet player pays Tribute to Jazz Legend Duke Ellington on the 120th Anniversary of his birth Live at Nighttown!

Featuring: John Richmond-clarinet/sax, Dave Kosmyna-trumpet, George Foley-piano, George Lee-acoustic bass, & Sunny Tabler-drums.  

Also featuring Vintage Film Clips of Duke Ellington & Orchestra from personal collection of John Richmond.

This year marks the 120th anniversary of the birth of Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington, who remains the most influential jazz composer, arranger and bandleader of all time.  Nighttown is celebrating by presenting Ellington authority John Richmond leading a five-piece band performing well known Ellington classics, and many that swing so hard or are so lyrical that they deserve to be better known.  The program will also include choice film footage covering many decades of Ellington’s career.  In just a couple of weeks after the Nighttown show, Richmond will perform the program at the Toulouse Jazz Festival in France.

A great treat will be the presence of crack trumpet player Dave Kosmyna.  Dave is a professor of trumpet, music theory, composition and jazz band at Ohio Northern University, but most importantly he is one of the most swinging trumpet players you will ever hear.  Dave is a regular member of Toledo’s Cakewalking Jazz Band, records with the Climax Jazz Band of Toronto, and has performed with the famous New Orleans Rascals of Osaka Japan.  He has also been the principal soloist with several symphony orchestras and has recorded classical music on TELARC records.    

Rounding out the band is George Foley on piano, George Lee on bass and Sunceray Tabler on drums.  Lee and Tabler have recorded with French Boogie Woogie pianist Philippe LeJeune, and recently performed with him here at Nighttown.
