So frickin’ good. Duke’s homage to the fun and sassy music of the 1920s and 30s, featuring seriously great horns, Duke on acoustic guitar, and a rotating cast of female vocalists that keep things swinging. Part blues, part jazz, all so damned good. Every track worth a play. Great stuff, sophisticated & top notch.|
