DR. JOHN : DUKE ELEGANT
(CD PARLOPHONE / 2 23220 2)

1999


On the wrong side of the railroad tracks / I'm gonna go fishin' / It don't mean a thing (If it ain't got that swing) / Perdido / Don't get around much anymore / Solitude / Satin doll / Mood indigo / Do nothing 'till you hear from me / Things ain't what they used to be / Caravan / Flaming sword.

La meilleure façon de faire évoluer la musique de Duke est d'éviter de vouloir faire du Ellington. Dr JOHN l'interprète à sa manière, moderne et funky ; il la baigne dans la sauce du Bayou et lui redonne une jeunesse. D'ailleurs, ne retourne-t-elle pas à ses origines en trempant dans cette mixture de la New-Orleans ?
