CD Reviews

Fuera de serie!!
Rafael Alberto Val | Buenos Aires, Argentina | 09/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Este disco es un fuera de serie. Tenemos a un Earl Hines inspirado en sus apariciones. Una base con monstruos de la talla de Richard Davis, Aaron Bell, Sonny Greer y Elvin Jones; A eso hay que sumarle a los grandes solistas de la orquesta de Ellington (Nance, Anderson, Brown, Cooper, Gonsalves, Hodges, Procope, Harold Ashby, Hamilton...) y como si fuera poco se suma Pee Wee Russell en clarinete. Presten atencion al solo de Cat Anderson sobre el final de la cancion "Once Upon...". Este disco es imperdible de principio a fin."
In the shadow of the Duke.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Once Upon A Time is, for all practical purposes, a scaled down version of the Duke Ellington orchestra led by pianist Earl Hines. All the major Ellingtonians are present: Cat Anderson, Ray Nance, Jimmy Hamilton, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves and numerous others. A guest appearance by former Coltrane quartet drummer Elvin Jones comes as an unexpected surprise. This is a far more traditional setting than one would have expected to hear him involved with in 1966. His energy here is infectious and it is worth a listen just to hear him in this context. Although not a typical item in Earl Hines' discography, Ellington fans will certainly love this hard swinging disc."
