ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

“Duke’s Diamonds: An Ellington Celebration” is pianist Thomas Snow’s fifth CD and is a wonderful remembrance of a magical, live concert given at the Claremont Hotel in Southwest Harbor, ME. The concert was originally presented in August, 2015 by Snow’s trio and features renown veteran saxophonist Ralph Norris and internationally-acclaimed bassist Marshall Wood.

Each member of the trio is a virtuoso in this style of jazz and, as a trio, they work like a well-oiled machine; their execution of each of these morsels from the Ellington Songbook spans a gamut of descriptors: sensitive, athletic, electric, subtle, exciting and, above all, absolutely swinging!
