Album Notes
The title track Picadillo is at once a celebration of Latin cuisine and a tribute to trombonist Barry Rogers. Barry's iconic solo from the El Sonido Nuevo album has been orchestrated for eight trombones! Duke Ellington's catch phrase "I love you Madly!" has been shortened in our album title (Yes, Madly!) referring to the four tracks of Ellingtonia: the ballads Chelsea Bridge and All Too Soon, and two poems written by Duke and narrated here by our guest artist Mercedes Ellington (Duke's granddaughter!) Add two soulful songs by vocalist Antoinette Montague and some Latin-jazz, and you have what Gary Walker of WBGO has called, "A great, wholly diversified effort. I expected nothing less!"

"A sound that demands attention!" WABC Radio
"Tight and crisp, and almost Basie-esque!" Downbeat
"The best big band you've never heard about!" Hot House
