Billy Strayhorn: Lush Life *

Performers Billy Strayhorn

Blue Note | January 23, 2007 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
Billy Strayhorn is one of jazz's most fabled figures (on his own merits, which were considerable, and because of his complex relationship with Duke Ellington). His myth gets a thorough exploration in the 90-minute documentary LUSH LIFE, and the soundtrack to that film is naturally filled with music by the famous composer, arranger, and pianist. Showcased here are 15 of Strayhorn's compositions performed by contemporary jazz artists like Joe Lovano, Dianne Reeves, and Bill Charlap. Appearances by iconic pianist Hank Jones and the ubiquitous Elvis Costello add glitter to the all-star roster.
