Ella & Duke at the Côte D'Azur [LIVE] by verve at My Promo Pool. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. This two-disc package features highlights from several concerts by Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald during the Le Festival International de Jazz

Product Description

This two-disc package features highlights from several concerts by Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald during the Le Festival International de Jazz d'Antibes-Juan-les-Pins in the south of France between July 26 and July 29, 1966. Both jazz legends are in top form throughout and the obvious affection between them results in some sublime musical interaction. Of the nine vocals, only three - "Mack the Knife," "It Don't Mean a Thing...," and "Just Squeeze Me..." - feature both Sir Duke and Ella together. Otherwise, Fitzgerald is backed by the more intimately suitable Jimmy Jones trio. Her signature scat style of vocal improvisations - especially on "It Don't Mean a Thing..." - is effortless and effervescent throughout. This is contrasted by the emotive affection of tracks such as "The More I See You." The Ellington performances are typical of his mid-'60s sets. His orchestra is especially effective on the wailin' "Diminuendo in Blue" - featuring a blistering blow from Paul Gonsalves (tenor sax). Another particularly inspiring track is the ten-plus-minute "The Old Circus Train Turn-Around Blues" - featuring Ellington on keys doing his best Thelonious Monk imitation. He emphatically interjects chords that are ever so slightly askew, yet rhythmically perfect.
