Arranger, lyricist, and pianist Billy Strayhorn was Duke Ellington's alter ego. They partnered for 30+ years in writing both popular and artistic jazz compositions; "Take the A Train", "Lush Life", "Day Dream", "Isfahan", are examples of tunes written by this quiet jazz composer and lyricist. The Scott Gwinnell Quintet will revisit these masterpieces through a contemporary lens, with the help of some of Detroit's most talented jazz musicians. They will explore this virtuoso's library in the way that only Detroit musicians can, combining energy and sophistication to present a unique vision in a way that Strayhorn would've appreciated.  The group is led by pianist Scott Gwinnell,  Emma Aboukasm on vocals,  Janelle Reichman on tenor sax,  Rob Bickley on bass, and  Pete Siers on drums.
