The concert, held at Constitution Hall, was designed to be a charity event, but due to the furor in the local press, the auditorium was only two-thirds full for the performance.
From to the end of his life, LP), Ellington received many requests for performances of the Sacred Concerts. Billy Strayhorn was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus in early Moreover, he encouraged Strayhorn to continue writing for the band. It would be his final composition. When Strayhorn died on May 31,Ellington was on the road in Reno. No one could replace Strayhorn, of course, but Ellington built his Second Sacred Concert around the talents of a superb musician who would give new voice to his music.
That musician was the vocalist Alice Babs. For those who may be unaware of her, Babs could be considered the Swedish version of Julie Andrews. She had unerring pitch, perfect English diction, and was an outstanding scat singer. Ellington could put any music in front of her, and she would sight-read it without error.
The two first met in Februarywhen Ellington was booked to film a television show in Sweden. The producers wanted to have a local singer perform with the Ellington band, so they handed Ellington a pile of records by leading Swedish artists for him to audition.
Babs was flattered at the offer—she had been an Ellington fan since she was 12 years old—but was completely surprised when Ellington called three weeks later, asking her to fly to Paris in the coming days to record.
Perhaps the memory of that rendition convinced Ellington to hire her to sing his new sacred music. While Babs performed the Second and Third Sacred Concerts many times, she was unable to tour extensively with the band, owing to her own career and family commitments.
Babs flew to New York in mid-January for four days of extended rehearsals, two concert performances, and the official recording of the Second Sacred Concert.
Ellington had composed Indian Summer - Duke Ellington - Jazz-History Vol. 10 (Vinyl minutes of new music in just about four months, and only he knew the way the music was to be assembled. John the Divine. For the first concert, the ensemble simply moved to the sanctuary of the church, where an overflow crowd of people and a TV crew awaited the new music.
Ellington had anticipated the acoustical issues at St. Thus, all three of the Sacred Concerts were made available complete on CD for the first—and possibly only—time. Ellington said that the piece depicted the scene before, during and after the creation of order, and indeed, the music is so descriptive it nearly sounds like a ballet score. Babs was particularly impressed with this piece stating that Europeans, the conductors, people in the symphony orchestras will greatly admire this work.
It belongs in the world of serious classical music. That is certainly true of the outer segments of this minute work, but the central spoken part, intoned by the choir and soloists sounds like something from a church pageant. However, the boy on the Fantasy recording seems rushed, and unaware of the underlying humor.
The first half of the melody is highly chromatic, opening with an ascending minor second, followed almost immediately by a descending minor seventh. In the next phrase, a descending major second is followed by an ascending minor second and a tritone. After two times through that obstacle course, the melody becomes fairly logical with relatively simple melodic movement. Taken on its own, it is simply a difficult song for Babs; but when paired with the lyrics, we see how the melody compliments the words.
But what does Heaven combine? Her opening chorus shows her astounding vocal control and winning delivery. When Babs returns, the band adopts an attractive beguine feel for a chorus. In the final cadenza, Babs dazzles with her clear swoop into the high register. Ellington usually sent an assistant two weeks ahead to teach the choirs how to sing the music in the proper style.
Even with this clever joke, this piece might be a little hard for a non-believer to take, but Babs is the perfect communicator. From heavenly angels, Ellington then salutes an angel on Earth, the Reverend John Gensela Lutheran minister from New York who used personal and church resources to help needy jazz musicians Gensel is pictured with Ellington at the top of this article.
The trumpeter offers brilliant demonstrations of his legendary growl and open horn techniques, while constructing a passionate portrayal of Father Gensel. However, there are some catchy melodies, good solos by the band and valid points in the lyrics. The orchestration is impressive and highly descriptive in his emulation of road traffic.
Live performances of this piece were show-stoppers with their inclusion of a lengthy Rufus Jones drum solo. The following piece was also a show-stopper in a different sense. The Fantasy recording seems lifeless, and that makes it easier to hit it with brickbats, but its importance becomes apparent in the video recordings discussed below.
It is similar to the Prayers of the People offered weekly in many churches. At the end, the choir sings a lyric, contrapuntal passage in four-part harmony. It opens with rubato statements of the Psalm by Babs and Ellington. This section stops and starts several times, and it just goes on too long before exploding into the closing fast tempo yes, there is such a thing as too much Alice Babs!
Still, the complex instrumental motives are well-played, and the solos by Paul Gonsalves, Cat Anderson and Buster Cooper bring the recording to a thrilling conclusion. As implied above, the video recordings of the Second Sacred Concert are superior to the official audio version. Both versions were filmed in the fall ofwhich meant the musicians had a better grasp of the music, as they had been playing it live for several months.
Further, the visual aspect gives us important details that cannot be discerned from the audio recording. Part 1Part 2. Alice Babs is the featured vocalist, with a beaming countenance to match her remarkable virtuosity. However, the most illuminating portions of the video appear in the final 25 minutes. By removing the invisible barrier between the performers and the audience, we are set up for the explosive finale.
They move into the congregation while Watkins, Babs and Ellington demonstrate a hand-clapping pattern for the audience. All of this kinetic and musical energy raises the intensity of the music, and creates a visceral experience that is quite exciting on television, and must have been thrilling to witness in person.
Fifty years after these concerts, there are many surviving audience members who specifically remember the hand-clapping and dancing in the aisles.
InEllington received another reminder of his mortality when he was diagnosed with cancer in both lungs. Ellington did not share this news in public, but on October 24, when he premiered his Third Sacred Concert at Westminster Abbey, his health was failing him.
The preparations for the concert were exhausting and troublesome. The band had rehearsed some of the music after hours at the Chicago nightclub, Mr. However, Ellington continued to tinker with the music right up until the performance. Reportedly, Ellington had stayed up over 48 hours straight editing and re-writing music—a difficult task for anyone, but especially for a year-old man with a fatal disease.
Ellington and the band took the red-eye to London, landing there the day before the concert. They went right into rehearsal. Paul Gonsalves had an epileptic seizure on the day of the concert and was taken to the hospital. Meanwhile, Alice Babs had flown in from Sweden, and she learned her songs just hours before taking the stage.
Shortly before the concert, Mercer Ellington went backstage to check on his father: He was lying on the cot, barely breathing, looking like a very tired, exhausted old man. With visions of Ellingtonia still dancing in my head, I figured I would compile a list here of personal favorites. Lewis Porter turned LP) coat LP) this in graduate school as part of the lineage of the tune from the Original Dixieland Jazz Band through the sophistication of Art Tatum in and on to Charlie Parker and others after that.
Featuring so many of his longtime featured soloists Barney Bigard, Harry Carney, Johnny Hodges and on and on this stands as probably my favorite Duke arrangement of a work from outside his own pen or those of his inner circle members. Duke had already composed numerous significant ballads by this point, but to my ears this marks a breakthrough in the level of gentle lyricism at a time when even ballads were still typically rather upbeat.
My first in-depth exposure to Duke the pianist outside the context of his Orchestra came through this record. The spiritual side of Ellington the composer and the man is well-documented and that too could easily get its own Top 10 list.

Duke Ellington was far from a typical Christian. He swore, smoked and drank; he collected royalties for music he did not compose, and he was a serial adulterer. However, Ellington’s belief in God stemmed back to his early childhood, when he attended prim Methodist services with his mother, and roof-raising Baptist meetings with his father.
