iTunes Review

Drummer/bandleader/producer Terri Lyne Carrington uses Duke Ellington’s classic Money Jungle trio album from 1962 with bassist Charles Mingus and drummer Max Roach as a template for this reflective yet forward-thinking GRAMMY®-winning project. Nine of Ellington’s Money Jungle compositions are explored here; Carrington wisely excludes the better-known “Caravan” and “Solitude.” She contributes two of her own originals, plus one by Provocation pianist Gerald Clayton. The core trio is at times supplemented with others, including vocalist Lizz Wright and trombonist Robin Eubanks. A funky-then-swinging take on the spoken-word-enhanced title track opens, followed by the flowing “Fleurette Africain” with guest trumpet and vocals by living legend (and Ellington band alumnus) Clark Terry. Bassist Christian McBride nimbly lays down a meaty solo on “Very Special,” while Carrington’s onetime boss Herbie Hancock serves as Ellington’s spoken voice on the closer, “Rem Blues/Music.”

Customer Reviews

Incredible reinterpretation

This is an absolutely wonderful and deeply personal reinterpretation of what was probably considered an untouchable..until now. The subtle & beautiful arrangements, consistent mood, incredible playing by everybody involved (Gerald Clayton, Chris McBride and Terri Lyne have an incredible hookup and sound together) and a fantastically charming guest appearance by the great Clark Terry..this album is a gift that keeps giving. And I loved the spoken word too. Any criticisms? No! Grammy-worthy material for sure!

She's done it again.

TLC is just letting her creative juices flow, every track stands on it's own.
Love it.

Could have been great

Rem Blues would have been a nice piece without the awful spoken word.
