The modus operandi of Ellington Is Централна тема от сериала Жребият - 1993 - Митко Щерев - Осъдени души (Филмови хитове), Vol. The sole exception to the Ellington ia is the Strayhorn -penned "Take the 'A' Train," a song that will forever be associated with the Duke.
Jimmy Jones provided a stunning solo reading of this composition on the first volume, but it gets a full band treatment on Vol.
In fact, the leader seems to be a bit more present on this album compared to Ellington Is Forever, Vol. This is not to say, however, that the excellent contributions of the many musicians on this record go without benefit of the spotlight. One only has to listen to Roland Hanna's solo piano Volume Two to "In a Sentimental Mood" or Philly Joe Jones ' masterful brushwork on "I'm Beginning to See the Light" to realize the immense quality of the musicianship on display on this record.
As on the first album, Ernie Andrews appears here on two tracks. His contributions, so essential to In A Mellow Tone - Kenny Burrell - Ellington Is Forever overall quality of the first volume, are somewhat mixed here.
However, this may seem this case only because the listener cannot help but compare it to the near-perfection of his performances on Vol. Of historical note is the fact that this is the last recording to feature trombonist Volume Two "Butter" Jackson, who passed away after the sessions were recorded but before the album could be In A Mellow Tone - Kenny Burrell - Ellington Is Forever. Although he plays his horn with the confidence and expertise of a man who had been involved with some of the greatest bandleaders of all time including Ellingtonthe most exquisite moment on this record is his singing on "Prelude to a Kiss.
Burrell's initial plan was to release a volume in tribute to Ellington once a year, but this record and the one that preceded it were the only two albums in this proposed series that were ever made. One can only imagine what could have been if Burrell had continued.
Alternately, and El Mañana - MC Davo - El Dominio positively, one can be glad that the only records that were released were as beautiful and as close to perfection as these two.
