The other duke

Duke Pearson was a pianist, composer, and bandleader active in the 1960s; he also produced some of the Blue Note label's significant hard bop recordings. For this album the 11-piece Swingadelic band has arranged ten tunes either written by or associated with Pearson; the arrangements are inventive, the performances crisp and swinging and somwetimes very funky--note in particular the finger-snapping blues "Mississippi Dip" and the powerfully swinging Donald Byrd composition "Duke's Mixture." -Rick Anderson, CD Hotlist, October 2011

Big Band Blues

Swingadelic mingles blues, jazzy swing, Latin flavor and funky boogaloo, drawn from recordings by Wynonie Harris, Count Basie, Louis Jordan, Muddy Waters and Solomon Burke, not to mention killer originals like "BC Boogaloo", "You Dig? You Dog!" and "Chicken, Beer, and Fifty Dollars." A happening set.
