Three Portraits of Ellington – sum up their celebrant Graham Reynolds in a word: ambitious. AC: How do you translate Duke Ellington for Generation Z in the 21st Century? GR: The original goal wasn’t to consciously translate Duke for anyone, instead the project was meant to give me a break from composing so I could just cut loose and play. GR: The hope is that there are many paths into this album, not just for the new young music listener, but for listeners across a broad spectrum of ages and listening habits, while still maintaining a whole. I’m stronger at variance than focus, so I tried to bring that to this material. For a jazz listener there are the band tracks.
Three Portraits of Ellington. Description: Three sets, three visions. The composing genius of Duke Ellington meets the ferocious energy of Jerry Lee Lewis meets the exploratory mind of Graham Reynolds in this album, with Gabriel Prokofiev, DJ Spooky, and others helping expand the vision. Seven songs done three completely different ways, one unified album. For Graham, his Ellington show started as a -too much, just-have-fun, one-time-only, mposing side project. Then it was too much fun, and the audience too responsive, to let it rest there
The interplay between the three musicians is quite impressive, and Pass' mastery of the guitar is obvious (he didn't really need the other sidemen). Highlights include "In a Mellow Tone," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," and "I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good).
