Duke Ellington’s wonderful “Sacred Music” is both serious and swinging. It is a reverent and hip body of jazz composition, written late in his career, for jazz big band, vocal and instrumental soloists, and tap dancers.
For the past 30+ years, Earshot Jazz has presented an annual concert of Ellington’s Sacred Music. This year’s concert features the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, co-directed by Michael Brockman and Clarence Acox; guest vocalists Dee Daniels and Jacqueline Tabor; and special guest tap dancer Alex Dugdale.
