The Big Blind
Chicago, IL - USA
Livestream from the Green Mill

November 14: “The Big Blind” – The series culminates with a special, one-of-a-kind reprisal of Elling’s radio-style musical drama The Big Blind, which premiered in 2019 at Jazz at Lincoln Center with an all-star cast including Broadway legend Ben Vereen and NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater. Co-written by Grammy-nominated songwriter Phil Galdston, the piece will be transformed for this performance into a narrated piece, allowing Elling to perform the piece alone while wandering through cinematic vignettes in the appropriately noir-friendly confines of the Green Mill.
