Kindadukish……….the Ellington “sound”

Andrea Motis was about 13 or at most 14 years of age when this recording was made and it is staggering how such a young woman could could be imbued with the spirit of the Ellington sound. Stood alongside Jesse Davis, a player of international renown, she in no way sounds out of place in such illustrious company.

Subsequent history has shown that she has gone on to create an international reputation for herself as a multi-instrumentalist as well as a vocalist.

Sit back and listen to the sublime alto playing of the young but enormously talented Ms Motis on this Duke Ellington standard.
