De beaux moments, du jazz intimiste a des envolées big band.
J'avais le vinyle Pablo, et cette remasterisation bien que correctement réalisée n'est pas aussi agréable à l'oreille

Par Marie l'étudiante sage COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEUR le 8 décembre 2003
Format: CD
L'orchestre, comme toujurs, chez Duje, sonne de façon puissante et nuancée. Belle prise de son. Joie aussi de retrouver Paul Gonsalves en verve au saxophone ténor.
Pourtant on sent une baisse d'inspiration dans l'écriture, certains thèmes sont quelconques, et la routine guette un peu. Reste que la première des suites possède un climat envoütant et qu'on l'écoute avec joie.

HASH(0x9c09d03c) étoiles sur 5 ELLINGTON FLYING SOLO = UNDERRATED MASTERWORKS!!! 10 janvier 2001
Par Joseph Cavaseno - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This CD is a major purchase for anyone serious about the creative work of Duke Ellington. I am a major believer that despite Billy Strayhorn's great influence on Ellington, his presence alongside Ellington served as a musical crutch, and upon Strayhorn's passing, Duke was, for the first time since the late 1930's, forced to rely upon his own creative devices. Duke's output after1967 soared! Without Strayhorn, he was relegated to his own creative devices, and he suddenly exhibits the following changes in his compositional style: 1)an awareness of pop music and culture, and a willingness to infuse elements in keeping with the times... 2)a newly found plaintivity, similar aesthetically perhaps to his 'jungle band'(1926-1933)days....dark, richly textured voicings, raw emotional outcrying. ... 3)a new sparsity, an importance and urgency now seems attached to fewer notes and musical phrases...everything seems heightened, more meaningful 4)an overall accumulation of influences 'learned' from the Strayhorn period (1938-67), such as a fuller appreciation of the their own serious formats (note: I don't use the word classical) What I am leading up to here is this: the recordings documented here from the post-Strayhorn era (1968-1974), namely the Goutelas and Uwis Suites, are totally revolutionary works of art from Duke Ellington's most intense creative period, in my opinion. Of course, the Queen's Suite, from 1959 is also totally incredible work, and probably more accesable to most 'jazz' listeners, format and texture-wise, and still bears much of the Strayhorn sound. The Queen's Suite is still written in the format Duke designed in the year 1944, with his Perfume Suite: Ellington/Strayhorn dealing in series of short 'songs' featuring a variety of mood pieces with certain formulaic textures. Well, get ready, because the Uwis and Goutelas, though still basically formatted in the short song format, totally break camp where texture is concerned. Duke tries everything f rom an atonal flute/piccolo duet in fourths, to a damn Polka. And the beauty of it? It's all pure Ellington, raw and uncut, without the Strayhorn cleanliness. if anything, these pieces will remind you of David Murray's Octet of the 1980's or perhaps Sun Ra! Duke seems to believe in himself so much here, and seems to be totally unconcerend with any need to make a 'hit' or be accessible at all. He is just writing here, pure and honest and deep ly, from the well of emotions he had on tap that made him the greatest American composer. The result is some of the rawest, darkest, most emotionally intense music I have ever heard. Buy it!

HASH(0x9c09d0c0) étoiles sur 5 Such Obscured Beauty 7 février 2006
Par J. B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This review is an excerpt from my "So You'd Like To..." guide called, "Explore the Music of Duke Ellington: Part I."

In 1958, Duke Ellington agreed to appear at a musical festival held in England on the account of a chance to meet Queen Elizabeth II. At the festival, Duke Ellington was presented to the queen, and she reportedly conversed with him longer than anyone else. Charmed, Duke Ellington returned to the U.S. and, within a few months, composed The Queen's Suite in Queen Elizabeth's honor. After the suite was recorded at his expense, it was made into a single copy and sent to Buckingham Palace. For seventeen years, it would remain the only copy until the Duke Ellington estate released the recording two years after the Duke's passing, and we are extraordinarily previleged. Now issued on "Ellington Suites" along with The Goutelas Suite and The UWIS Suite, The Queen's Suite is a collection of compositions based on some of the beauty experiences in Duke Ellington's life. The first movement, "Sunset and the Mocking bird," was composed on a pretty melody that Duke Ellington once heard a bird sing. Jimmy Hamilton renders the major statement beautifully with his clarinet, while the Duke and Johnny Hodges also contribute brilliantly as soloists. Perhaps due to the suite's focus on aesthetic, the compositions are not especially demanding, but every minute of the suite is a pleasurable listen with many memorable moments. The fifth movement, "The Single Petal of a Rose," is a beautiful duet between the Duke's piano and Jimmy Woode's bowed bass. It is a reflective piece that Duke Ellington often played at concerts.

HASH(0x9c09d558) étoiles sur 5 Perfect music 19 septembre 2008
Par Felix Guerenabarrena - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This is a proof that Ellington's composing skills rank up there with XX century's most brilliant musicians, both in the classical and jazz realms. According to the liner notes this music was entirely written by Ellington as a present for the Queen of England. It is a music that shines for its sheer beauty. Perhaps it is less swinging than some other jazz pieces, but it is so enchanting that anyone with ears will be thrilled by it. Don't hesitate to buy this CD since it is a remastered version of a previous release. The remastering is most evident in the Queen's suite, as now most of the hiss has been removed and the instruments sound sharper than ever. We should feel blessed for being able to listen to these masterpieces.

HASH(0x9c09d480) étoiles sur 5 Bandleader, Pianist, Composer Extraordinaire 4 décembre 2013
Par Richard C. Ferris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This is a 2013 Concord Music / Pablo Records reissue of the Ellington Suites, originally issued in 1976. The release consists of three suites with a combined fifteen movements, and total playing time of fifty-three minutes. Additionally, a 5.26 minute bonus track, titled “The Kiss” is also included. This track, composed and recorded by Duke Ellington in 1972, has never been previously released.

The three suites, Queen’s, Goutelas and Uwis all have unique origins and back stories which are covered in Stanley Dance’s entertaining and informative original liner notes. Unfortunately, the initial1976 album release was mostly ignored by the public and considered a commercial disappointment. This was primarily due to rapidly changing tastes of music fans and the fact that Duke had passed away two years prior to the release date. It should be noted that the album did achieve critical acclaim and garnered an Emmy award for best jazz performance.

The importance of this reissue cannot be overstated. It allows the devotee a second listen and re examination of some of the highest quality of work Duke Ellington composed and performed.

Most casual fans, when contemplating Duke’s extended pieces think of the Carnegie hall concert series, New Orleans, Latin America, Far East Suites or the Sacred concerts. However, these three collected Suites hold a special significance, created in the later stages of Ellington’s illustrious career and released following his passing.

Every listener will have their favorite tracks. Certainly,” Single Petal of a Rose” from the Queen’s Suite, is a monumental recorded performance. Duke offers a melodic, haunting piano rendition, finely complimented by Jimmy Woode’s bass. The sixth movement “Apes and Peacocks”, composed and arranged by Ellington and Strayhorn is a fitting creative conclusion to the Queen’s Suite.

The Goutelas Suite contains six movements, one of the up-tempo numbers worth noting is “Having at it”. Paul Gonsalves’ sax solos are simply sensational with Duke providing a nice counter tempo with the keyboards.

The third and final Uwis Suite includes three movements. The sax solo by Harry Carney in the intro number is musically inspiring. He’s never sounded better. Also, Ellington’s polka contribution, “Klop” is worth noting for its uniqueness. It sounds like a natural inclusion to the artist’s marvelous body of work.

Last but not least is” The Kiss”, a previously unreleased number until this 2013 reissue. The number was recorded on Oct. 5, 1972 and included on this CD as a bonus track. It’s a forceful, energetic composition with a standout drum performance by the legendary Rufus” Speedy” Jones. It sounds like it could have easily included in Duke’s” Anatomy of a Murder” soundtrack score.

The CD audio quality is exceptional thanks to the remastering efforts of Joe Tarantino. Fans will also appreciate the 2013 liner notes provided by Ashley Kahn. The writer provides additional insights into the artists and the background related to the recording of the three Suites.

This release is highly recommended to serious Ellington fans who are interested in the artist and all the music that mattered to him.

HASH(0x9c09d5dc) étoiles sur 5 I never knew about this, still I was stunned 13 novembre 2006
Par freereign - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I had never heard the "back story" of this music, I just picked this out of the used record bins at the sight of the name Ellington. I just put it on one day while composing emails, and I was simply stunned. I'm no jazz expert, no music theorist who can tell you a d flat minor from a G major, I just like what I hear. I learned a little about Ellington's genius years ago and he's never let me down, even though I haven't felt a need to study his music. I just let it happen and you very likely can do the same.
