The Novel Jazz Septet features the music of the great American jazz composers Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. The band will highlight well-known tunes, plus rare, vintage gems, recently unearthed from original scores at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.  The septet's members hail from Portland, Belfast, Northport, Newcastle, Gardiner, Augusta and Waterville, and travel far and wide, keeping the spirit of Duke and Sweet Pea alive and swinging!

“These are all seasoned jazz guys, and the result is a sound that made me sway, smile, groove, slow-dance with myself around the living room and play the air snare drums.” – Aimsel Ponti, Portland Press Herald
