Heaven and Earth:

A Duke Ellington Songbook



2016


Duration: 5 1/2 minutes

Music and Words by Duke Ellington
Arranged by Henry Dehlinger


High Voice and Piano

Notes

Come Sunday was Henry Dehlinger’s first written and recorded arrangement. It was written for Metropolitan Opera soprano Danielle Talamantes and is the first track on their album, Heaven and Earth: A Duke Ellington Songbook. In large sections of the arrangement, the piano accompanies the singer in a stride style evocative of Ellington himself. Ellington learned to play jazz music as a youngster by mimicking key movements from a player piano as it played James P. Johnson’s challenging stride standard, Carolina Shout. Dehlinger’s transitions between the rubato sections and the rhythmic swinging sections are both logical and sensitive.
