Description: Earl Hines, piano

“This was one of Earl Hines’s last great achievements on records, and it displays the full range of his genius: an amazing rhythmic imagination, a dazzling, rather aristocratic finesse (somewhat akin to Ellington’s own) in terms of pianistic touch; and a knack for making even profound ideas seem spontaneously conceived.”
BBC Music Magazine - "The Fifty All-Time Great Jazz Discs" [80361]

Earl Hines Plays Duke Ellington Volume Two makes available for the first time on CD the remaining tunes recorded at the same sessions that yielded the musical gold of the critically-acclaimed Volume One. What is there to say that hasn’t already been said about this encounter between two of the supreme masters of jazz? At its best, a jazz performance melds the work of the composer and the art of the interpreter into something totally unique. In Earl Hines Plays Duke Ellington we have a marvelous example of this process-a kind of master-class demonstration of the essence of jazz. Listen, marvel and enjoy!

In a Mellotone, Solitude, It Don’t Mean A Thing, I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart, Satin Doll, In A Sentimental Mood, Don’t You Know I Care, I’m Just A Lucky So and So, Prelude To A Kiss, All Too Soon
