Known as the Space-Age Swing Band, Planet D Nonet's music covers the gamut of the jazz tradition, including Louis Armstrong, Mezz Mezzrow, Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, proto-Detroit R&B from Paul "Huckelbuck" Williams, King Porter, Todd Rhodes, as well as Sun Ra. The PD9 recently toured the South to great acclaim and has released six recordings in the last three years, including a double-CD tribute to Sun Ra.

The Planet D Nonet will pay tribute to Billy Strayhorn with brand new charts by Mike Sailors + arrangements by Joshua James, Michael Malis, Duncan McMillan & Pat Prouty, David Berger & Chuck Isreals.

If you are familiar with the jazz composition, "Take the A Train," then you know something about not only Duke Ellington, but also Billy "Sweet Pea" Strayhorn, its composer. Strayhorn joined Ellington's band in 1939, at the age of twenty-two. Ellington liked what he saw in Billy and took this shy, talented pianist under his wings. Neither one was sure what Strayhorn's function in the band would be, but their musical talents had attracted each other. By the end of the year Strayhorn had become essential to the Duke Ellington Band; arranging, composing, sitting-in at the piano. Billy made a rapid and almost complete assimilation of Ellington's style and technique. It was difficult to discern where one's style ended and the other's began. The results of the Ellington-Strayhorn collaboration brought much joy to the jazz world.
