Ten-time Detroit Music Award-winning jazz band Planet D Nonet presents their critically acclaimed project, Blues to Be There. Led by Detroit percussionist RJ Spangler and trumpeter James O’Donnell, the band revives music from Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s more obscure catalog and breathes new life into forgotten jazz and blues classics over the past 15 years. For example, they have taken care of Fletcher Henderson, Buddy Johnson, Sun Ra, and South African jazz, among others.
