O’s Notes: Arranger Mark Masters and trombonist Art Baron take on some of Ellington/Strayhorn’s prime material (1940-1042) in Ellington’s band featuring Ben Webster (t-sax) and Jimmie Blanton (b). Master’s big band includes Bruce Lett (b), Kirsten Edkins & Jerry Pinter (t-sax, s-sax), Mark Ferber (d) and special guest Tim Hagans (t). This is an open-air large ensemble that allows the soloists room to breathe resulting for a very listenable experience.
