Rutgers Hosts Ellington Conference

Those who love jazz enough to get scholarly about it should take the A train (or whatever train Amtrak is running) to Newark, N.J. on Nov. 10. Once they arrive, they can take in the Third Annual Duke Ellington Society Conference at Rutgers University’s Institute of Jazz Studies, a one-day smorgasbord of learned papers and erudite lectures addressing various aspects of Ellingtonia.

To provide food for thought, a continental breakfast and light lunch will be served; after hearing about the music, pianist Dick Katz will play the music itself. Best of all, the meals, conference and concert are all open to the general public and absolutely free of charge.
