The Calgary Jazz Orchestra presents The Duke! Music of Duke Ellington and a tribute to Lester Young, featuring the CJO’s Shane Statz. Performing with the CJO is guest saxophonist Cory Weeds. Join us Sunday, June 16th (Father’s Day) for the CJO’s final concert of the season and enjoy a show filled with outstanding music and a fun atmosphere.

Cory Weeds is a tenor saxophonist with over 14 cd’s under his name. Weeds has an expressive sound rooted in Jazz tradition, owns a record label, and is the former owner of the Cellar Jazz Club in Vancouver.

Duke Ellington wrote over 1000 compositions during his 50+ years as a musician (composer, pianist, jazz orchestra leader) many of which you will recognize during the concert. “There’s an undeniable

timelessness of Duke’s music, and the craftsmanship of his pieces is so great.” – Wynton Marsalis. Many of the arrangements to be performed are by CJO Artistic Director Johnny Summers, specifically designed for the musicians on stage.
