Echoes of Ellington

Swing Time's tribute to the UK swing orchestra Echoes of Ellington

They came, they played, they conquered. Echoes of Ellington was one of the great UK swing orchestras of the 1990's. Formed in 1991 by Pete Long, they reigned supreme in the UK as interpreters of The Duke's work. Following their 1995 appearance at The Barbican Centre in London as part of the VE Day celebrations, they became a favourite of the London, and then UK Lindy Hoppers. They travelled the world, they recorded and broadcast, they worked with ballet dancers.

In August 2000, Pete Long decided to call it a day.

These pages have been assembled as a tribute to an orchestra that swung with style and humour: Echoes of Ellington.
