Pianist Ellington Carthan shares some musical DNA with the most famous bearer of his name. Carthan’s work parrallels the more symphonic/neo-classical jazz that Duke Ellington made with Billy Strayhorn, combining the lush harmonies of jazz and classical music with more classical form. Carthan sticks closer to jazz tradition but often arranges classical pieces for a more improvised setting.  He also loves to let his fingers swim across the ivories, creating soothing, fluid and enchanting melodies.

Here he teams up with bassist Eliot Seppa and drummer Allen Bernard Branch.

The duo’s show will be livestreamed by An Die Musik Live.
