Manhattan Jazz Orchestra. Manhattan Jazz Orchestra. It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), 06:57. Prelude to a Kiss, 09:04. Song for Edward, 04:53.

To celebrate properly its tenth anniversary in 1999 the Manhattan Jazz Orchestra and conductor, arranger David Matthews turned to the music of Duke Ellington, the centenary of whose birth was that same year, to produce an album whose aim, in Matthews’ words, was to be unique while maintaining a clear sense of Ellington’s originals. Personnel: David Matthews, leader, piano; Lew Soloff, Ryan Kisor, Joe Shepley, Scott Wendholt, trumpet; Jim Pugh, Larry Farrell, Birch Johnson, trombone; David Taylor, bass trombone; Fred Griffin, John Clark, Chris Comer (1, 2, 8), French horn; Tony Price, tuba; Chris Hunter, alto sax; Aaron Heick, Lawrence Feldman (3, 4, 6), soprano sax, clarinet; Roger Rosenberg, bass clarinet; Chip Jackson, bass; Terry Silverlight, drums; Christine Sperry, vocal. Title: Hey Duke! Year Released: 2002 Record Label: Fantasy Jazz.

The album, however, owes more to Gil Evans’ arranging style than to Ellington’s (although Ellington and Evans are closely related). Matthews writes with a flair for drama, brassy colors and original harmony. Seven of the album’s eight tunes are Ellington compositions, with Song for Edward being the lone Matthews original. The band includes four trumpets, four trombones, two French horns, tuba, three reeds, piano, bass and drums
