ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After years of working together as student and teacher, Milton Suggs and Willie Pickens have come together as two professionals to offer a stellar interpretation of the compositions of two of America’s most beloved and profound composers. The music of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn has proven to be a timeless staple of American culture and a small sample from their vast bodies of work are offered in a piano-vocal duo format.

Milton Suggs's rich baritone and Willie Pickens's lush harmonics are the perfect compliment to one other. The album explores a vast emotional framework not only through song selection, but interpretation as well. With a heightened sensibility toward harmonics as well as dynamics, each track tells its own story. Listen and enjoy!
