Where else to celebrate his birthday than Harlem, where his music became so famous in the 20's. He defined that generation and gave it a sound. 

Duke just happened to be there at the right time of the Harlem Renaissance and was the best at what he did. The Harlem Renaissance was led by intellectuals of every field and Duke was one of them.

Selecting from his repertoire -that is internationally heralded as one of the greatest in Jazz - the Quartet will play only his compositions. Each musician - a bandleader in his own right - will be featured in the one hour concert.
