This polished and spirited tribute is devoted to the sophisticated, elegant musical world of Duke Ellington, and his visionary arranging and composing partner, Billy Strayhorn. It intriguingly recasts select standards from their canon, including some rarely performed works. Stunning arrangements of songs from the vast repertoire capture the classic melodies and jazz anthems to glorious effect.

British vocalist Sarah Moule’s purring voice – honeyed in sound, subtle in timing and pitch, shrewd in weighting the music with meaning, captivates. Simon Wallace’s arrangements and sympathetic accompaniment are immaculate. Together, they create an intimate and striking voice-and-piano show.

Suitable for those aged 14 and over
