It's a brave man who takes on the tracks written and made famous in the 1930's,1940's and one song from the 1950's by the Duke of Jazz,"Duke Ellington".

The good doctor does it with a great deal style, makes them his own by adding his own brand of "fonk" giving each track amazin' bass that whomps out.

These songs may hark back to another time but "Doctor John" makes them sound bang up to date, try listening to "I'm gonna go fishin'" without tappin' your feet, you have no chance it's a fonk out groove of the first order.

Highly recommended for pre-going listening to get in the party mood...

I went to the "Duke Elegant" concert at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, an electifying experience. The good Dr was on top form and the tracks that he performed from the album made its purchase essential; I was not disappointed. Fishing is my favourite track but that takes nothing away from the rest.

I discovered Dr John quite by chance about 3 years ago, and can honestly say this man is without doubt one of the most talented musicians ever. Having then purchased lots of his work, I thought he could really not get much better, till I purchased online a copy of Duke Elegant. To take the work Of Duke Ellington is one thing but to actually throw your own funky, jazzy beat to it, in the way Dr John has is pure magic.Every track on this Cd is just pure class. There are some Cds you play where you flick through to your favourites as you decifer which tracks you like and hate etc. However with Duke Elegat, you just put it on and admire every single track. It is so funky you just cannot stop your foot moving. I cannot believe anyone buying Duke Elegant would be disappointed. If you are a serious lover of good pure music, Duke Elegant is a must for your collection. Probably the best CD i have ever purchased.
