Price $25 – $55

San Francisco, CA

Two of jazz’s most fluent and elegant improvisers, clarinetist Eddie Daniels and pianist Roger Kellaway, play Duke Ellington’s sublime and swinging music in a duet format ideally suited to the intimacy and acoustical refinement of SFJAZZ’s Miner Auditorium.Over the course of a five-decade career, Eddie Daniels has set the standard for excellence on clarinet and tenor saxophone, first coming to prominence in 1966 as part of the legendary Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra during its inception at New York’s Village Vanguard. His résumé includes recordings with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, saxophonist Yusef Lateef and guitarist George Benson as well as a stellar output of releases as a leader. Equally at home in jazz and classical settings, the Julliard alum has been praised by no less an authority than Leonard Bernstein, who described him as “a thoroughly well-bred demon.”Roger Kellaway’s career has made him an icon among jazz fans, musicians and filmgoers. A true virtuoso, he has lent his inimitable keyboard talent to work with Sonny Rollins, Ben Webster, Bob Brookmeyer, Carmen McRae, Al Cohn & Zoot Sims, and Don Ellis. He won a Grammy for his arrangement of Eddie Daniels’ Memos From Paradise, and is equally regarded as a composer, receiving an Oscar nomination for his score to Barbra Streisand’s A Star Is Born and composing the unforgettable closing theme to TV’s All In The Family.
