A Decade With Duke by Eau Claire Memorial Jazz I
Released: Dec 2009
Label: Jagjaguwar
Justin Vernon of Bon Iver gets major points for helping his old high school jazz band earn some much-needed cash. Noble intentions aside, the high quality of the music and positive energy make this a must for both jazz and indie rock fans. The bearded troubadour obviously knows and loves the standards he sings, and his natural lower register is displayed on a Sinatra-style romp through "The Lady Is a Tramp." Bon Iver fans will want to go directly to the gorgeous reading of "Lump Sum," but don't miss Vernon's version of Ellington's "Satisfied," which he distills down to its essence.
