Money Jungle (Revisited)

"Orchestra Hall's Target Atrium is the Twin Cities' answer to New York's Dizzy's Club Coca Cola in Lincoln Center — a smaller, more intimate venue where listeners can enjoy concert hall-quality jazz." —Pioneer Press

About this Concert:

In 1962, Duke Ellington joined the uncompromising modernists Charles Mingus (bass) and Max Roach (drums) in a now-legendary meeting of disparate musicians communing with Duke’s classic compositions. Now the Atrium Jazz Ensemble, in this concert led by Minneapolis-based Bryan Nichols, looks at their landmark recording, Money Jungle.

  • Bryan Nichols, piano
  • Jeff Bailey, bass
  • JT Bates, drums

More Details:

  • Money Jungle has inspired hundreds of musicians and is a clear view of the negotiations that jazz requires.
  • The music in this program is another example of Duke Ellington’s towering place in the American compositional canon.
  • Money Jungle stands as witness to confrontation, uncompromising individualism and rich beauty. Even the title suggests a kind of critique on “selling out” to make your path through the modern urban jungle.
