BILLY STRAYHORN - Masters of Jazz Cabu
(double CD MASTERS OF JAZZ / R2CD 8028) France

1939 à 1948


CD 1 : Take the A train / Something to live for / I'm checking out, go'om bye / Grievin' / Your love has faded / Lost in two flats / Tapioca / Day dream / After all / Just a-settin' and a-rockin' / Clementine / Passion flower / Chelsea bridge / Love like this can't last / Noir bleu / Raincheck / My little brown book / Johnny come lately / Balcony serenade / Tonk / Drawing room blues / Double ruff / A flower is a lovesome thing.

C'est une idée lumineuse de sortir une compilation de titres composés par Billy Strayhorn (ou en collaboration avec Ellington). Tant de merveilles sont dues à sa plume, à commencer par Take the A train, l'indicatif même de l'orchestre, Clementine et Chlo-e qu'utilisera Boris Vian dans ses romans, ou encore Lush life que sublimera Coltrane (ce dernier est interprété par Kay Davis avec Billy Strayhorn au piano pour tout accompagnement). Les versions des autres morceaux sont dues à l'orchestre du Duke ou à de petites formations ellingtoniennes, à l'exception de Halfway to dawn et Tailspin, Strayhorn étant soliste dans ces deux derniers. Compilation à ranger à côté de l'album AND HIS MOTHER CALLED HIM BILL.

2 février 1932 au 14 février 1940


CD 1 : It don't mean a thing (if it ain't got that swing) / Delta bound / Happy as the day is long / Raisin' the rent / Get yourself a new broom (and sweep all your troubles away) / I'm satisfied / Truckin' / Isn't love the strangest thing / Love is like a cigarette/ Kissin' my baby goodnight / Oh babe, maybe someday / Shoe shine boy / It was a sad night in Harlem / I've got to be a rug cutter / There's a lull in my life / It's swell of you.

CD 2 : Alabamy home / All god's chillun got rhtythm / If you were in my place / Swingtime in Honolulu / You gave me the gate (and I'm swingin') / Rose of the rio Grande / When my sugar walks down in the street / I'm checkin' out goombye / In a mizz / A lonely co-ed / You can count on me / Your love has faded / Killing myself / Solitude / Stormy weather / Mood indigo.

Ivie Anderson a souvent été présentée comme la chanteuse commerciale de l'orchestre. J'avoue pour ma part, avoir un faible pour elle et ne dirai donc que du bien de ce disque. Bien que tous ces morceaux se trouvent déjà dans diverses anthologies, c'est un plaisir de pouvoir les enchaîner en compagnie d'Ivie d'un bout à l'autre.
