Diggin’ The Duke is the exciting new release from vocal enchantress Deborah J. Carter. With this program Deborah shines a very new and personal light on known and unknown repertoire of Duke Ellington. Deborah, with Mark Zandveld and Leo Bouwmeester, rearranged from a contemporary perspective a selection of Ellington’s compositions, and Deborah composed original lyrics to a few of his instrumentals. They use a variety of swing, Latin and fusion rhythms and adventurous harmonies.
