Product Description:

Full performer name: Jay Leonhart/Joe Beck/Gary Burton/Terry Clark.
Personnel: Jay Leonhart (bass); Joe Beck (guitar); Gary Burton (vibraphone); Terry Clark (drums).
Recorded at Clinton Recording Studios, New York, New York on November 8, 1994. Includes liner notes by Duke Ellington.
This swinging session focuses on a dozen standards from the vast Duke Ellington songbook. Bassist Jay Leonhart sings along with his bass a la Slam Stewart to open "In a Mellotone" and "C Jam Blues." A loping "Azure" features Joe Beck's brash guitar contrasting with Gary Burton's bluesy vibes. Burton and Leonhart's smoking duo version of "Take the 'A' Train" and a soft pretty take of "Isfahan" (omitting Beck) are the top tracks of the date. A pleasant, if not essential CD. ~ Ken Dryden
