  • Sunday, Feb. 21, 3 p.m.: "Billy Strayhorn: Lush Life," film and reception. As Duke Ellington's longtime collaborator, Billy Strayhorn penned some of the world's most definitive jazz standards. Nearly half a century after his death, Strayhorn's musical genius remains unrecognized. In the 2007 "Billy Strayhorn: Lush Life" documentary, directed by Robert Levi, the mystery behind the complex life of this pioneering composer, arranger and pianist gets uncovered, bringing his rich legacy to light. Following the film, a reception will feature jazz singer Glenda Davenport and the Hiroshi Yamazaki Trio performing a set of standards, including hits of Strayhorn and Ellington.
