Exceptional Duke

Caponsacchi

Bubber Miley (later outdone by Rex Stewart) and Tricky Sam Nanton were two early Ellington musicians who "vocalized through their horns"--using wah wah mutes, plungers, and "half-valving" (one of the reasons Ellington's music is so personal, individual, and difficult to replicate (as compared to a Basie or Kenton chart). So it's not surprising that Ellington was reluctant musicians whose instrument was the flute or electric guitar--neither belonged to the imaginative universe of expressive sounds comprising the Ellington musical universe. The collection caught my attention because of the piece called "Flute." Unlike so many of the "lightweight" and repetitious flute recordings of the '60s, Ellinjgton's "Flute" is a deeper, more complex work, suggesting that he was modifying his views as he approached the end of his career.
