The Pianist

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Duke Ellington had so many talents composer, arranger, bandleader, personality that his skills as a pianist could easily be overlooked. Fortunately he did record a fair amount of trio albums through the years so there is plenty of evidence as to his unique style which was both modern and traditional at the same time. The Pianist has trio performances from 1966 and 1970 and finds Ellington shifting smoothly between styles and moods while always remaining himself.
