Clark TERRY & Red MITCHELL – To Duke and Basie 1986

Clark TERRY & Red MITCHELL – To Duke and Basie 1986
1997 Issue.

Jazz

Flugelhornist Clark Terry and bassist Red Mitchell play a full program of duets, with most of the music being associated with either Count Basie or Duke Ellington. Actually, the most remembered selection of the date is C.T.’s humorous Hey Mr. Mumbles, What Did You Say, which has a call-and-response vocal by the two masterful musicians. Overall, this is a particularly delightful set, with plenty of wit displayed along with the hard swinging.
By Scott Yanow, All Music Guide.

Only two musicians might not be considered to be enough to give the aura of the big band era to the contemporary digital listener, but these two masters have done that and much more.
This imaginative, swinging and at times melancholic music will satisfy all fans of swing and mainstream and, yes, both musicians sing on few occasions. Naturally, Terry’s horns are the main attraction of this CD (based on Terry’s memories on times spent with Ellington and Basie), but the bass is equally challenging and swinging.
