CD Reviews

THIBAUDET'S ELLINGTON is as good as THIBAUDET'S RAVEL.
MOVIE MAVEN | New York, NY USA | 06/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jean-Yves Thibaudet is a master of French pianism: the playing on his Debussy and Ravel discs is hard to beat by anyone, living or dead. In fact, his 2 cd disc of the complete piano pieces of Ravel is one of my favorites ever. This new cd of arragements of the music of Duke Ellington is at once hot and cool and contemplative and exciting and absolutely splendid. There are well known songs like "Sophisticated Lady" and "Lush Life" but also some esoteric stuff like a suite from Ellington's Broadway show, "Beggar's Holiday." The arrangements were made for Thibaudet by masters like Dick Hyman and the liner notes are very informative."
Ellington would have loved this....

"Reflections On Duke is pure taste. The choice of Ellington pieces is perfect and Thibaudet is so very accomplished on piano that sometimes a listener gets wrapped-up in "where's he going with this." Then more identifiable Duke melody line emerges and we're off and running again. A tip of the hat to Jean-Yves. Never heard anything like it."
