Address29 Salmon Falls Rd., Buxton, ME 04004
NotesMatinee of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn at the Saco River Theater with the Novel Jazz Septet! The Novel Jazz Septet will be swinging-over to the Saco River Theatre (Buxton, ME) for a musical matinee by two of the most influential and acclaimed icons of jazz, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, on Sunday, 13 November, 2022, 3:00PM. The matinee format is perfect for those of you jazz lovers who don't like that long drive home in the dark after a concert! Also, this will be the band's last Ellington & Strayhorn-featured performance of their 2022 season. After this, during the oncoming long, cold, Maine winter, Novel Jazz begins assembling new Ellington & Strayhorn arrangements for their 2023 season. Novel Jazz has been a fixture in the Maine jazz scene for almost two decades. Their mission is to share the music and stories of these two giants of jazz who wrote some 2,500 compositions over their musical careers, two percent of which represents the well-known standards and 98% of which represents rarely heard gems. They’ll perform standard tunes from the Ellington/Strayhorn repertoire plus newly arranged compositions that they have unearthed from the Ellington Archives of the Smithsonian Museum of American History as well as the Strayhorn Collection at the Library of Congress, Washington D.C. Novel Jazz members have dusted these pieces off, rearranged them for the septet, and given them a 21st century sound, all of their own. General admission tickets to the performance are $15. For more information, call the Saco River box office at 207-929-6473/email info@sacorivertheatre.org or navigate your browser to https://www.sacorivertheatre.org/events. To find out more about Novel Jazz, navigate your browser to https://www.mainejazz.net/. The Saco River Theatre is located at 29 Salmon Falls Rd., Buxton, ME 04004. So, bop-on over to the Saco River Theatre on Sunday, the 13th of November 3PM, for some classic jazz by legends Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, performed by the Novel Jazz Septet! Remember, “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!” Figure Legend- The Novel Jazz Septet will be performing at the Saco River Theatre (29 Salmon Falls Rd., Buxton, ME 04004) on Sunday, November 13, 2022, 3PM, for a swinging matinee of jazz by legends Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn! For more info, call 207-929-6473 or see https://www.sacorivertheatre.org/events . “These are all seasoned jazz guys, and the result is a sound that made me sway, smile, groove, slow-dance with myself around the living room and play the air snare drums. Note to self: Bring this disc to work and impress jazz-appreciating boss.” — Aimsel Ponti, Music Writer, Portland Press Herald "There are two kinds of worries - those you can do something about and those you can't. Don't spend any time on the latter." — Duke Ellington
