Description

Stunning re-workings of Duke Ellington's classic melodies performed by an all star seven piece group, assembled by Polar Bear and Loose Tubes saxophonist and composer Mark Lockheart. 'Ellington in Anticipation' also features Finn Peters on alto saxophone and flute, Liam Noble on piano and Sebastian Rochford on drums.

Taking many of the Duke's revered compositions such as "It Don't Mean a Thing", "Mood Indigo", "Take the A Train", "Azure" and "Creole Love Call" Lockheart has deconstructed and arranged these well known melodies into a fascinating set of new music, rich in orchestration and concept and entirely respectful to the beauty of Ellington's original creations. Featuring some of the most exciting and original musicians in the UK, this is a unique and radical album which beautifully combines the old with the new.

Personnel: Mark Lockheart (tenor saxophone), Finn Peters (alto saxophone, flute), James Allsopp (clarinets), Emma Smith (violin), Liam Noble (piano), Tom Herbert (bass), Sebastian Rochford (drums)
