Storyville is one of the few labels that come up with

real new Ellington stuff. This release is no exception.

After the very special 'TogoBrava Suite' (studio)album

and the splendid album: 'Jaywalker' here is:

'THE PIANO PLAYER'. One that grows on you!

Wild Bill Davis does an excellent (very subtile) job here!

An album so beautiful so timeless...to be played over

and over again.

The original mastertapes (recorded 1962-1970) were used

for this issue. Note: tracks 8-13 was rec.on 11 May 1970

not on 11 May 1971. The very informative inlay

-written by Bjarne Busk- gives the right date,

the backcover gives accidently 1971.

Duke Ellington (piano); Wild Bill Davis (organ)

Joe Benjamin (double bass); Rufus Jones (drums)

Search for sound samples elsewhere... (cduniverse.com)

This is awesome music. Duke Ellington evokes transcendental

feelings by playing not a note to much like Thelonious Monk

did with comparable result.

Be warned: Order and you'll be sleeping near your mailbox

till it arrives.

If you like 'Piano Reflections' and 'The Pianist'

you can't go wrong with this one. A real must!

Other great pianoalbums by The Duke are,

'Piano Duets-Great Times!', 'Money Jungle',

and 'This One's For Blanton'.

Format: Audio CD
Recorded over a 10 year period (1961 and 1971), the first 13 tracks are stunning, beautiful solo piano pieces that just ooze with atmosphere.

Without any doubt this is absolutely essential, especially if you are partial to Duke alone at the piano.

The last three tracks on the album are in a completely different musical style, played by a Quartet featuring Duke (piano), Wild Bill Davis (organ), Joe Benjamin (bass) & Rufus Jones (drums). These organ led tracks are full of happy, funky style vibes and are an absolute joy to hear.

Released on Storyville, this compilation is a superb collection of tracks which at times can be difficult to find. If you see it in stock at Amazon I'd say you can't really afford to miss out on it!
