With special guest Borislav Strulev, cello
“It is a rare event in jazz where one man can all but reinvent an instrument, bringing it to a new stage of revolution.”
- Jazz critic Leonard Feather (on Eddie Daniels)
“Like Gershwin, Kellaway balances significant jazz credentials with a far-reaching orchestral vision.”
- The International Review of Music
Clarinetist Eddie Daniels has enjoyed an illustrious five-decade career, performing and recording with such musicians as Thad Jones, Mel Lewis, Freddie Hubbard, Yusef Lateef, and George Benson. His musical partner in crime, Roger Kellaway, is both a major pianist and a composer/arranger of protean ability. His discography includes more than 250 albums, and he has worked with music legends across genres, from Elvis to Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie to Yo-Yo Ma, Joni Mitchell to Mancini, and from Quincy Jones to Michael Tilson Thomas. Fresh from winning the 2013 Grand Prix de l'Academie du Jazz for Duke at the Roadhouse, recognizing the best record of the year in France, these masters will perform together at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola.
