Notes & Reviews:

This album featuring pianist Luigi Palombi profiles the piano works of the famous jazz artist, Duke Ellington. Tracks include Soda Fountain Rag, Dancers In Love, Lotus Blossom, and Ellington's Sacred Concerts Suite.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
Palombi won me over pretty much from the start... his nimble trot through [the] high-velocity stride piano figurations [of Soda Fountain Rag] makes it shine... [and Fleurette africaine] throws light on the Satie-like busy stillness of its apparently serene but actually volatile triadic patterns, while the surreal melt of harmonic non sequiturs that define The Clothed Woman are lent powerful objectivity without the jazz-orchestra filling.
