Andrew Dickeson’s Blue Rhythm Band in concert
Featuring some of Sydney’s best jazz musicians, Andrew Dickeson's ‘Blue Rhythm Band’ is without doubt Australia’s most popular and sophisticated swing band. Drawing on the wonderful traditions of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Jimmy Lunceford and others, this band is ‘the real deal’ for swing music.
For this very special one-off concert at the Zenith Theatre, Dickeson and his quartet will delve into the repertoire of the legendary jazz maestro, Duke Ellington. Listeners can expect Ellington classics and a few surprises too: from the Duke’s achingly beautiful ballads, his jumping Harlem swing, and quirky Latin numbers – this is a rare opportunity to hear the Blue Rhythm Band in concert. Don’t miss out!
