KNIGHT CONCERT HALL

Narrated and hosted by Roxane Gay

Featuring Will Downing, Nona Hendryx, Quiana Lynell, Nicholas Payton and the Andy Farber Jazz Orchestra



Jazz in the Key of Ellison is a new concert production inspired by the musical life of America’s iconic writer Ralph Ellison - presented in music, words, and images.

Great stars perform music that inspired Ralph Ellison, acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winning author of Invisible Man and accomplished trumpeter, from Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman, Ray Charles and Nina Simone! Black American music was central to Ellison's life and to his stories. Join us for a special evening of live music inspired by the jazz world he loved and knew so well. There will also be readings from Ellison’s eloquent writings, and dazzling images from renowned visual artist and long-time friend of Ellison's, Romare Bearden, along with rare video clips.

Jazz in the Key of Ellison will feature acclaimed r&b and jazz vocalist Will Downing, Labelle star Nona Hendryx, Grammy Award-winning jazz trumpeter/composer Nicholas Payton, the 2017 Sarah Vaughan jazz vocal competition winner Quiana Lynell, and the Andy Farber Jazz Orchestra.
