Music and Words by Duke Ellington
Arranged by Henry Dehlinger

Notes

Ellington’s original arrangement of Almighty God Has Those Angels is deliciously complex. Ellington simultaneously has bass and drums evoking a fast jazz waltz feel, while the melody and piano harmony express a slower shuffle rhythm. Henry Dehlinger’s arrangement blends these two elements in a number of interesting and original ways. The soprano line sails over the accompaniment in the second chorus. The vocal line is written as if it were a transcription of an improvisation, which is sure to make any classical vocalist smile from ear to ear.
