Darius de Haas celebrated the centennial and classic songbook of American jazz composer, pianist, lyricist and arranger Billy Strayhorn, who was best known for his successful collaboration with bandleader and composer Duke Ellington. His compositions include "Take the 'A' Train," "Chelsea Bridge," and "Lush Life." Darius was joined by pianist Tedd Firth, bassist George Farmer and very special guest Janis Siegel, from the Manhattan Transfer.
