YSOM / Ellington Jazz Series: The Piano Jazz Summit

  • MORSE RECITAL HALL 470 College Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)

The Piano Jazz Summit features three keyboard legends: Barry Harris, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Aaron Diehl.


For over forty years, the Duke Ellington Fellowship has brought the giants of jazz to Yale’s concert halls and to the city’s public schools. In 1972, Yale’s president Kingman Brewster presented the first Ellington medals to thirty jazz greats, including the Duke himself. That year marked the beginning of a series of extraordinary jazz concerts by Eubie Blake, Dizzy Gillespie, Paul Robeson, Marian Anderson, Odetta, Max Roach, and Charles Mingus, to name just a few
