Acclaimed Canadian trumpeter/vocalist/songwriter Leif Arntzen (Channeling Chet 2000, TLAB 2003) re-appears in 2006 with a ground- breaking new working band The Leif Arntzen Quartet, performing “All Ellington", a modern jazz/rock/folk trip into a collection of song classics by America's late great composer/arranger Duke Ellington. The quartet's groove-based freeform arrangements alternately soar, swing, rock, funk, folk, blues it up with TLAQ's deep bag of unusual sounds and life-loved soul. Leif will take the band into the studio in early 2006 to record the results of their journey into “All Ellington" for Gwendoline Records.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
