Intimacy of the Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Lots of rare music was uncovered when these recordings were first released. Duke Ellington did a remarkable number of private recordings with small groups taken from his orchestra and the selections included on this CD reissue are some of the best. A "Combo Suite" from 1967 introduces Billy Strayhorn's "Intimacy of the Blues" along with five forgotten but worthy originals while the music on the second half of the program some of which features organist Wild Bill Davis dates from 1970; "All Too Soon" showcases Ellington's new tenor Harold Ashby. Excellent music.
