Ellington Suites – Calefax & Tony Overwater Trio (2005)


A very special collaboration: Calefax and the jazz-musicians from the Tony Overwater Trio playing Duke Ellington’s music live.



Calefax is known for being somewhat unconventional classical musicians, something which was proven again when they decided to play and record one of the materpieces of 20th century music: The Far East Suite by Duke Ellington. Also adding Ellington’s The River and asking musical support from the renowned Tony Overwater Trio makes this CD a special mix.
