SCCD 31046 Duke's Delight / Duke Jordan Quartet
Duke Jordan’s long association with SteepleChase started with Jordan’s visit to Copenhagen in 1973.
This session with the very best sidemen New York could offer features Jordan’s own compositions – except for the solo piano rendition of Duke Ellington’s classic In My Solitude .
Accompanied by the veteran bassist Sam Jones and the great drummer Al Foster (who joined Miles Davis shortly after this session) the trio provides solid ground for solos by trumpeter Richard Williams, saxman Charlie Rouse and the leader himself.
“… Jordan’s restraint and taste shape a music that is haunting in its lyrical qualities while being attractive in its precision…. Duke’s Delight is our delight .” (Unique Magazine)
