5.0 out of 5 stars "Music of Duke Ellington Orchestra ~ Lorraine Feather", April 19, 2004
This review is from: Such Sweet Thunder: Music of Duke Ellington Orch (Audio CD)
Many of us are fans of Duke Ellington, but this release from Sanctuary Records featuring the talents of Lorriane Feather "Such Sweet Thunder", gives the music another level of spectrum within a host of less known themes from the "Duke" ~ swinging, haunting and mesmerizing performances abound without so much as a flinch from the band, backup vocals and solos are the trimmings ~ bringing together an outstanding array of musicians, being inspired by one another, plus having fun ~ solo work and lyrics by Feather is a dream of creativity, she's clearly a world class act from start to finish ~ originality is pure and so refreshing, keep them coming Lorraine.
Possibly one of the best contemporary Jazz vocal albums via Ellington ever recorded ~ captures all the essence of both musical styles and is a perfect entree to the Jazz genre. Wonderful original arrangements by Morgan Ames (vocal - background & vocal arrangements), Shelly Berg (rhythm arrangements), Bill Elliott Swing Orchestra (horn arrangements),Russell Ferrante (bass, piano & rhythm arrangements), Mike Lang (piano arrangements), Lorraine Feather (vocal/rhythm arrangements) ~ each track sends vibes, feel the impact from each member and the integral artistic success, dynamics trip in and out with every musician having a blast, with all the ingredients from Ellington and Feather cooking up a tasty dish for all us fans of Jazz!
Entire album is a stand out ~ "A PEACEFUL KINGDOM", "ANTARCTICA", "BACKWATER TOWN", "CAN I CALL YOU SUGAR", "IMAGINARY GUY", "LOVELY CREATURES", "MIGHTY LIKE THE BLUES", "THE 101", "RHYTHM, GO 'WAY", "SEPTEMBER RAIN", "TENACITY" ~ while building on Feather's original style, Lorraine pays tribute to the late great Ellington ~ this is certainly a keeper to add to your ever growing collection ~ this is Jazz at its finest hour...gotta love it!
Total Time: 44:08 on 11 Tracks ~ Sanctuary Records 86353 ~ (3/23/2004)
