The flawless jazz singer Sarah Moule and immaculate pianist Simon Wallace make a perfect duo of talents. Here they bring to elegant life the music of the jazz titan Edward Kennedy 'Duke' Ellington, the paramount orchestral figure in jazz. Stunning arrangements of songs from the vast repertoire of his work blend with fascinating Ellingtonia to glorious effect. An intimate and striking voice-and-piano show. _________________________________________________________________

In an Ellingtonian mood?

This polished and spirited tribute devoted to the sophisticated, elegant musical world of Duke Ellington, and his visionary arranging and composing partner, Billy Strayhorn, intriguingly recasts select standards from their canon, including some rarely performed works.

'A first-rate set.' Sunday Times

British vocalist Sarah Moule's purring voice - honeyed in sound, subtle in timing and pitch, shrewd in weighting the music with meaning - captivates on these classic melodies and jazz anthems, whilst Simon Wallace's arrangements are immaculate.

★★★★★ 'Outstanding interpretations… Moule's voice is cool, elegant. Wallace's arrangements are immaculate.' The Observer
