The Novel Jazz Septet (NJS) will be in concert at the Frontier Cafe on Friday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. featuring music of the iconic Duke Ellington and his equally iconic musical collaborator, Billy Strayhorn.  Novel Jazz is a Maine-based group, now in their 14th season of concerts around Maine and New England.  Their mission is to share the music and stories of these two giants of jazz who wrote some 3,000 compositions over their musical careers, two percent of which represents the well-known standards and 98% of which most have never heard. 

They’ll perform standard tunes from the Ellington/Strayhorn repertoire plus newly arranged compositions that they have unearthed in the Ellington Archives of the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington D.C., some of which have not been heard in decades.  NJS has rearranged these pieces for the septet, dusted them off and given them a 21st century sound, all of their own.
