Muze PNote One of the most historic jazz records ever recorded, THE COMPLETE SESSIONS brings together, for the first and only time, the two most influential figures in jazz. Living up to the expectations placed upon such a meeting would, of course, be impossible, but this album is wonderful by any standard. The format is an interesting one in that basically Duke Ellington assumed Billy Kyle's piano chair in the 1961 version of Armstrong's All Stars band. Rather than performing Armstrong's usual repertoire, however, the two giants chose to record a selection of Ellington's best compositions.
Muze PNote The resulting album allowed Duke to play some of his most sensitive, relaxed jazz piano on record and gave Satchmo a chance to stretch out on some unfamiliar material, which he does with his usual flair and inventiveness. High points include Armstrong's boisterous solos, amazing improvised scatting and extra lyrics on a high-energy version of "Cottontail" and Ellington's lean, supple lines on "Duke's Place." The seemingly infallible trombonist Trummy Young contributes swinging, bluesy solos throughout and clarinetist Barney Bigard plays with an air of sophistication that well suits the Ellington vibe.

Producer: Bob Thiele; Michael Cuscuna (Reissue)

Professional Reviews

Q (7/01, p.130)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...Overall, it's a bluesy and upbeat set....but the band has no trouble getting mean and moody for the likes of 'Solitude'. Still wonderful..."

JazzTimes (10/00, p.79)
- "...Disc one provides the thrills, while disc two offers serious fans insights into the process of collaboration between the 2 most important jazz musicians of the 20th century."
