Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite: Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra


Editorial Review

Something about "Toot Toot Tootie Toot" by Duke Ellington brings to mind warm gingerbread cookies, makeshift snowmen and sitting by a fireplace lined with stockings and garland.The Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra performs the songs from Ellington's Nutcracker Suite at Blues Alley."Danse of the Floreadores," "Sugar Rum Cherry" and the other seven tracks from the jazz rendition of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite are sure to have you dreaming of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Mouse King.
