Product Description

On his eighth Criss Cross leader date, Wycliffe Gordon (awarded 2012 Trombonist of the Year by both the DownBeat Critics Poll and the Jazz Journalists' Asssociation) distills his exhaustive knowledge of the oeuvre of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn on a wellcrafted, ten-piece program spanning a timeline from 1927 (Creole Love Call) to 1967 (The Intimacy Of The Blues). Throughout the proceedings, which explore a broad array of flavors, Gordon, spurred by a killer rhythm section of pianist Aaron Diehl, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and drummer Alvin Atkinson, plays with characteristic effervescence and tonal creativity, matched by Adrian Cunningham on saxophones and woodwinds and, on several selections, the soulful violin virtuoso Zach Brock and vocalist Dee Daniels.

Gordon Swings and Get Funky 11 Jun 2013
By Larry Humberstone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have listened to Ellington to the point of thinking there was not much left to do in interpreting his arrangements.Gordon knocks it out of the parks with arrangements that are new but hold on to the essence of what Ellington is all about, You can't swing and get any funkier than this.

I Love Wycliffe Gordon and this CD!!! 17 Nov 2013
By Lipsey Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This cd is awesome! I am a new Jazz listener and I am loving Swing. After listening to this cd...I went back and listened to Duke Ellingtion's performances of the songs just to see what inspired WG. Wow...I'm sure Mr. Ellingtion is smiling and swinging in heaven just as we are on earth to this music. What a tribute!!! I recommend this cd to anyone. I play it everyday!!!

Thumbs up from the Duke 2 Sep 2013
By Thufferin Thuccotash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These cats had waaay too much fun recording this CD. Wycliffe grunts and growls with the best of them; pianist Aaron Diehl is someone to watch and listen to, a unique voice with formidable chops. This is yet another outstanding release from CrissCross!
The Great Wycliffe Gordon Did It Again! 4 Oct 2014
By Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have thoroughly enjoyed this CD, as the great Wycliffe Gordon and other members of his band are all excellent, and the choice of tunes mixes familiar items with rarer numbers. The playing is world-class, and they're having a lot of fun during the performance. You'd feel that there is an air of relaxed good humor throughout the album.
