Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Shifting tempos, swelling orchestrations, and standout playing by Harry Carney, Quentin Jackson, Cat Anderson, and Ray Nance further heighten the impact of this Ellington masterwork. The distinguishing mark, however, is the presence of Mahalia Jackson. Her rich, deeply soulful delivery on "Come Sunday" and the finale (in which Jackson sings the 23rd Psalm) give the piece the stirring immediacy that its subject matter demands. Jackson's performance and the elegant, dramatic interpretations of the Orchestra provide irrefutable evidence of the breadth and ambition of the Duke's compositional imagination.
