“One of the West Coast’s most formidable ensembles”
All About Jazz

Our Annual Duke Ellington Tribute Concert

The Montclair Women’s Big Band is a Bay Area treasure. Founded in 1997 by veteran trumpeter Ellen Seeling and saxophonist Jean Fineberg, the group is an alliance of some of the region’s most formidable jazz women. Forging a singular blues-drenched sound, audiences are electrified by the band’s powerhouse ensemble, addictive grooves and inspired solos.

This extraordinary swing machine will blow you away playing Ellington!

Producer: Bruce Hopewell

Complimentary wine, cheese, and charcuterie reception prior to show.
