Tribute To Duke Ellington
New York 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, NYC; November 3, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Uploader’s Notes:

Each set was played as one long piece with no clear end to each Ellington composition. I attempted to split the compositions when I thought the band started a new piece. I am more than likely incorrect on some. I can always offer up the two sets as two long tracks. The band’s versions of some of these Ellington tunes were so far out that I had a very difficult time identifying the compositions.

In 2015, the Matthew Shipp released To Duke on the French RogueArt label. The album was a tribute to Duke Ellington, featuring Shipp’s trio with bassist Michael Bisio and drummer Whit Dickey playing seven Ellington classics plus some Shipp compositions.

The Down Beat review by Bradley Bambarger notes that “Shipp’s instrument has been captured well on To Duke - whether he’s playing glittering lines in the Ellingtonia or the prepared-piano phrases of his original “Tone Poem For Duke” - so it’s too bad the hardworking rhythm section sounds so woolly and boomy.”

The All About Jazz review by Mark Corroto states “The trio suggests that if you want to listen to Duke, then buy Ellington records. But if you want to magnify the experience, then try some new music.” - wikipedia

  2. Many thanks. If you are so inclinded to offer up the sets as two long tracks, that’d be great too. Just asking since most devices tend to add a hiccup between tracks, even in ‘gapless’ mode. Either way, very much appreciated.

  21. Thank you for this. I’m surprised such an avantgarde guy played such a usually mainstream club — I wonder if the publicity for the gig noted that he’d be playing standards. Not that they sound so standard in his hands!
