Marshal Royal & Joe Wilder, with Mostly Ellington cd+dvd-audio
Jazz Hall of Fame trumpeter JOE WILDER was the first black musician to break the "color line" in Broadway musical productions. His impeccable and unique sound on his instrument has always made him a much in demand addition to both classical and jazz orchestras. In the '50s he appeared on the acclaimed LEGRAND JAZZ album (Columbia) that featured Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ben Webster and a "who's who" of jazz greats. His PETER GUNN album still earns plaudits. Now in his 80s, Joe Wilder is a regular member of the Smithsonian Jazz Orchestra and appears with his own quartet on occasion at the world famous Village Vanguard jazz club in New York.

MARSHAL ROYAL was the "sergeant at arms" for several decades during the glory years of Count Basie's high-powered orchestra. His tone and graceful melodic urgency on his trademark silver alto saxophone gained favorable comparison to Duke Ellington's alto sax great, Johnny Hodges. Without question, Marshal Royal was one of the most respected jazz musicians in history.

This album, MOSTLY ELLINGTON (recorded in 1990), unites Joe Wilder and Marshall Royal in concert for the only time they ever played together. Their soaring, beautiful front line horn tandem is augmented by a world class trio: Mike Wofford on piano; Bob Magnusson on bass; and Roy McCurdy on drums. The line up of songs here featured each horn player in his own quartet setting for one number along with a series of jazz chestnuts penned by Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. Recorded direct-to-two-track, this "on location" album carries stunning musical immediacy and sonic vibrancy.

1) It Don't Mean A Thing;
2) Mood Indigo;
3) Jitterbug Waltz;
4) I Got It Bad;
5) Daydream;
6) Something To Live For;
7) Perdido.
