Joe Pass – Portraits Of Duke Ellington (1974) (Pablo-Polydor Japan)
1974 | Genre: Jazz | EAC RIP | FLAC+CUE+LOG+HQ-Covers (400Dpi) | 254Mb+8Mb
"Portraits of Duke Ellington" is a phenomenal disc! This is jazz guitar of the highest order. The tone, the intellect, the soul, the technical proficiency, the elegance -it's all here. "Portraits of Duke Ellington" is one of those rare recordings that stands alone for active listening or can melt into the background when necessary. While 'Caravan' is perhaps my favorite song, it is the album's elegantly somber tone that most resonates. Given the seemingly little fanfare for this CD, it's an unappreciated gem. There are no unnecessary notes on this disc; when it comes to jazz guitar, this album is gilt-edged.
