Late in his career, Duke Ellington was persuaded on three occasions to take a brief hiatus from his big band and give trio recitals that focused on his piano playing. The final occasion is included on this CD, which was released for the first time in 1995. Although Duke apparently planned very little in advance, his program is a well-rounded set of old standards and newer and more obscure works.

This was Duke Ellington’s third and last solo piano performance, but, luckily, someone had a tape machine and preserved it. Usually, Duke didn’t stray from his full-time big band orchestra, which had served as his instrument and shied away from the spotlight. Yet, on the night of April 10, 1972 at the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC, he made a rare exception as part of a public series of composers playing and talking about their music.

With this setting, Duke lets his music to talking as he plays through his extensive catalog like Sophisticated Lady, Mood Indigo, Satin Doll, and Black & Tan Fantasy. He dose step out from behind the keyboard a bit to play around with the audience for a couple of numbers; a sing along to I’m Beginning To See The Light and some finger snapping with Dancers In Love.

I have a few of Duke’s works in my collection but this is the most intimate recording I’ve heard of all, of Duke and otherwise. Nothing fancy, just a one on one with the reclusive Duke and his keys. He really doesn’t have to say much, just press play and hear the fingers to the walking and talking.
