In memory of Fritz Pauer


Celebrating the 100th birthday of the great Billy Strayhorn, composer, arranger, trombonist, Ed Neumeister, releases his latest album with a collection of his arrangements of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s lessor known masterpieces arranged for jazz sextet. Included in the collection is the complete Queens Suite, Come Sunday from Black Brown & Beige, DEPK from the Far East Suite, and the Juan Tizol classic Caravan.

Featuring some of the finest interpreters of creative music today. Ed Neumeister, who played with the Duke Ellington Orchestra for over fifteen years, takes the Ellington/Strayhorn evolution as inspiration and adds his personal touch to the arrangements that allows the players to contribute with their own unique voices resulting in a modern creative reading of these half-century old classics.
