Rockin' In Rhythm: A Duke Ellington Tribute

Rockin' In Rhythm: A Duke Ellington Tribute by John Pizzarelli
Released: Feb 2010
Label: Telarc
John Pizzarelli's classic swing style fits snugly with key selections from the vast Duke Ellington songbook; his crowd-pleasing side partially obscures his decidedly adventurous streak. With a mix of small-group jazz and larger Ellington style orchestrations (Don Sebesky and Gerald Wilson get the Duke's "slow color wave" feel just right), Pizzarelli also charms in the solo spotlight with a guitar-only reading of "Just Squeeze Me." Vocalists Jessica Molaskey (aka Mrs. Pizzarelli) and Kurt Elling also pop in; and pianist Larry Fuller and saxophonist Harry Allen offer strong support throughout.
