In A Sentimental Mood - Awesome Eyes - Silky - Flamingo - What Am I Here For - Born in Washington, D. In addition to planning three special Ellington concerts City - Sara Bareilles - Little Voice Montpelier in the month of AprilI felt the project also demanded a recording, preferably one that could be released at the time of the celebration.
Selecting the artists for the recording project was easy. Sir Roland Hanna, a regular performer at Montpelier sinceis the most knowledgeable and distinguished of all Ellington scholars, as demonstrated in his breathtakingly sophisticated interpretations of Ellington compositions in concert as well as in his astute commentary in lectures and workshops. That memorable afternoon was followed by a fabulous duet concert that evening featuring Hanna with woodwind player Davey Yarborough another artist Learning Rastafari - Lexxy - Learning Rastafari had frequently performed at Montpelier.
I asked Davey to join Mr. Hanna that night because I knew theirs would be the perfect sound for our acoustically-perfect hall. Theirs would also be the perfect sound for an Ellington CD, I reasoned.
