The Academy Big Band, directed by Keith Nichols, performs pieces recorded by the Duke Ellington Orchestra of the early 40s, featuring arrangements by Duke Ellington and the young Billy Strayhorn, including Harlem Air Shaft, Concerto for Cootie, Perdido and Take the A Train. A 'prologue' of Ellington's compositions from the late 30s demonstrates the lead-up to the classic 1941 Blanton Band, named after bass player Jimmy Blanton.
