Hit Me with a Hot Note, Ellington & George Arr. Mark Hayes Choral SoundTrax CD
This Duke Ellington number was featured in Sophisticated Ladies, the musical revue celebrating the life and music of the great bandleader. A slinky bass accompanies some sassy vocals in the intro just before this swingin' setting grows into full-blown jazz. Syncopated horn licks and a tight rhythm section provide some sizzle on the optional SoundTrax CD and SoundPax.
