In 1963, Duke Ellington released Money Jungle, a trio album with bassist Charles Mingus and drummer Max Roach that’s now considered one of jazz’s pivotal recordings. Fifty years later, drummer and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington revisits the classic session with a tribute that won the 2014 Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. With groove, improvisation, and musical free play, Carrington and her quartet perform arrangements filled with blues, jazz, fusion, Afro-Cuban, and world for the “overall feel of a tapestry that affirms life” (NY Daily News).

$10 tickets in person at the FlynnTix Regional Box Office lobby window at 153 Main Street in Burlington, VT (UVM ID required). This offer is limited to one discounted ticket per UVM student and two discounted tickets per faculty/staff member.

This event is part of the Martin Luther King Celebration, Education & Learning Events.
All events are organized by the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity and Multicultural Affairs in collaboration with President Tom Sullivan, Department of Student Life and the College of Medicine.
