One day in 1973, Duke Ellington and producer Norman Granz organized one of the Duke's rare small-group sessions, with, coincidentally, some of the finest players in jazz. The results, need one elaborate, are exquisite! No new tunes or long-form works, just four hep cats doing some relaxed jamming on some familiar tunes: Ellington standards, except for Louis Bellson's tribute to Coleman Hawkins, "The Hawk Talks." Apart from his usual big band context, one gets to hear the Duke stretch out on piano--and realize what a fine, undervalued pianist he was. He could say more in one or two well-placed notes than most pianists could say in a whole chorus. The late Pass' playing is luminous, out of the classic Charlie Christian/Tal Farlow school of jazz guitar. Brown's playing is warm as the summer sun, and Bellson is one of the consummate jazz drummers. Three thumbs up!
