This CD contains 23 tunes by the Great pianist and composer Duke Ellington. This is a must for his fans and admirers of his Jazzy style as, unusually for Ellington, this set was composed for a British stage production and there are many mood creating fragments.
The music frequently features the driving work of Emmanuel Abdul-Rahim on congas and Bobby Durham on Drums. The band plays excellently and highlights are the unique quality of Harry Carney’s Baritone Saxophone on Chromatic Love Affair and Cat Anderson’s high Trumpet notes on Salome.
