"When Billy Strayhorn died of cancer in 1967, Duke Ellington was devastated. His closest friend and arranger had left his life full of music and memories. As a tribute, Ellington and his orchestra almost immediately began recording a tribute to Strayhorn, using the late arranger’s own compositions and charts. The album features well-known and previously unrecorded Strayhorn tunes that showcased his range, versatility, and above all, the quality that Ellington admired him most for: his sensitivity to all the timbral, tonal, and color possibilities an orchestra could bring to a piece of music." - All Music Guide "Bill" is of course Billy Strayhorn, the composer, arranger and pianist who served as Ellington's musical alter ego from their meeting in 1939 to his death in 1967. Strayhorn's contributions to the Ellington book, and to the jazz repertoire in general, were enormous. "Lush Life," the tune with which he introduced himself to Duke, remains one of the most literate (and challenging) ballads of all time, while "Take The 'A' Train," which became the Ellington band's theme song, is one of the most widely-known compositions in the jazz cannon. AND HIS MOTHER CALLED HIM BILL sidesteps these particular pieces but still draws from the full range of Strayhorn's career. A number of long-standing members of the band were still on hand in the summer and fall of 1967 when these recordings were made, adding further poignancy and musical depth to this tribute. Of particular note are Johnny Hodges' aching alto melodies on "Blood Count" and "Day Dream," Cat Anderson's relaxed and confident plunger mute work on "Charpoy," and Ellington's own keyboard punctuation on the coy, big--band-functions-like-a-small-group whisper of "The Intimacy of the Blues." Full title, And His Mother Called Him Bill. Remastered reissue of 1967 album. Packaged in a digipak reproduction of the original artwork. 19 tracks including 7 bonus 'Acht O'Clock Rock', 'Raincheck', 'Smada', 'Smada', 'Midriff', 'My Little Brown Book' & 'Lotus Blossom'.
