BUXTON — The Novel Jazz Septet will pay tribute to the great American jazz composers, Duke Ellington, and his musical side-kick, Billy Strayhorn, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21,  at the Saco River Theater, Salmon Falls Road.

For 15 years, Novel Jazz has highlighted well-known standards, plus rare, vintage gems, unearthed from original scores at the Duke Ellington Collection at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington D.C. The septet travels far and wide, keeping the history and spirit of Duke and Swee’Pea alive and swinging.  Tickets are $15.  For more information, visit sacorivertheatre.org, call 207-929-6472, or email packaa@sacoriver.net.
