Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 S Broad St, Philadelphia

“Lush Life: Philadelphia Celebrates Billy Strayhorn,” produced by the Philadelphia Jazz Project in collaboration with OutBeat organizers, will honor the musical pioneer. Featuring a group of diverse, multi-dimensional musicians, vocalists and poets from the Philadelphia area, the event will embody exactly what Strayhorn stood for throughout his musical career and personal life. The event will include performances from big bands, a cappella groups, solo acts and ensemble groups as they recreate some of the most important compositions known to jazz, in honor of Strayhorn. The arrangements, prepared by bassist and composer Keith DeStefano, will feature not only Strayhorn’s brilliant works but also many other original compositions that his work influenced such as pieces by Thelonious Monk and Charles Mingus.
