Music by Duke Ellington
Words by Billy Strayhorn and Gerald Wilson
Arranged by Henry Dehlinger

Notes

Dehlinger’s arrangement offers a rubato introduction—a stylized reminiscence of the opening bars to Black Beauty, an Ellington piano solo recorded in 1928—that sets the mood and tonality, and then shifts into a bluesy shuffle in a tip-of-the-hat to the original groove. He then layers the melodic line with some piano licks from yet another Ellington instrumental standard, C-Jam Blues. Danielle Talamantes’ rhythmically and melodically bold performance in her recording of Dehlinger's arrangement offers an ironic contrast to the vulnerability expressed in the words.
