DUKE ELLINGTON ORCHESTRA – JUNE 6
Born in 1899, Duke Ellington is known as one of the most prolific composers of the 20th century and one of the most influential figures in jazz. He led his band until his death in 1974, at which point his late son, Mercer, an accomplished trumpet player, took over the reins. Now, Ellington’s grandson, Paul, is at the helm, keeping three generations of family tradition alive.
LORRIE MORGAN – JUNE 11
The country songstress is realizing her first new solo album in five years. The record, titled Letting Go….Slow, is being regarded as some of her best work yet and is comprised of new songs and covers of country classics.
TOAD THE WET SPROCKET – JUNE 27
A favorite alternative band of the ‘90s, Toad the Wet Sprocket still shows no signs of slowing down. This year marks a couple of important milestones for the group: it’s both the 25th anniversary of their 1994 album, Dulcinea, which features the hit song “Fall Down,” and the 30th anniversary of Toad’s debut album, Bread & Circus, which was commercially released in 1989.
