Tthere's a recording you guys have got to hear, funniest thing i've ever heard.

Go on the itunes store and search for

'Tribute to duke ellington'

Then go to Barbara Hendricks/Monty Alexander.

Now, Monty is a brilliant jazz pianist... but he's teamed up with this classical singer and it's pure comedy gold. Check out 'it don't mean a thing' to see how a classical head approaches swing ;)

I don't know where else you can find it except on itunes, so sorry if this is useless to some of you :p:

EDIT: Listen to take the A train! :haha Good god this is so awful!

I followed your directions but I can't find what you're talking about :(

'tribute to duke ellington', then under 'albums' you'll see 'tribute to duke ellington - barbara hendricks/monty alexander...

I downloaded the whole album but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. Will listen now..

EDIT: Okay yes that is horrible, the stupid posh pronunciation and how she always runs out of beats by the end of the bar and has to rush the last few words.. Pretty sweet piano playing though.

I believe the album's unavailable in America. I tried to search for it on Google, and though I did find the album on several different websites none gave presented the opportunity to listen to or sample any of the songs. :(

I can email you a track or two if you really want heartbreaker?

The piano playing is great, I wouldn't ever doubt Monty. But her singing is just so funny
