Dizzy GILLESPIE : A PORTRAIT OF DUKE ELLINGTON
(CD VERVE / 817 107 2)

1960


In a mellow tone / Things ain't what they used to be / Serenade to Sweden / Chelsea bridge / Upper Manahattan Medical Group / Do nothin' till you hear from me / Caravan / Sophisticated lady / Johnny come lately / Perdido / Come sunday.

On ne peut pas ne pas songer au travail de Gil Evans autour de la trompette de Miles Davis quand on entend ces arrangements aux couleurs pastels qui servent d'écrin à celle de Dizzy Gillespie (arrangeur : Clare Fisher). Aux instruments traditionnels du jazz s'ajoutent flûte et cors. Peu de temps après avoir jammé avec l'orchestre du Duke (ELLINGTON JAZZ PARTY - 1959), Gillespie sort ce portrait d'Ellington où son jeu moderne (par rapport à ceux de l'orchestre, mis à part Clark Terry) redessine la silhouette de ces standards.
