This concert transported me to a musical place and time I did not expect. I have never heard the spirit and essense of Ellington come so alive. The entire Orchestra Hall was captivated to the point of not breathing by the song, "The Petal of a Rose" performed duet style by Joe Temperly on reed and Dan Nimmer on piano. If they recorded this concert I would open my wallet without reservation. If you want and experience you will never forget I would recommend a seat at one of the remaining shows.
