      Pas de Duke is Alvin Ailey’s spirited modern dance translation of a classical pas de deux, originally created in 1976 as a showcase for Judith Jamison and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The work is comprised of five solos and duets that require extraordinary technical facility, flawless timing, and strong acting skills. Since its premiere nearly 40 years ago, it has been performed by generations of dancers who have each put their own unique twist on the choreography, and it has stood the test of time in part for how perfectly it captures the timeless sophistication of Duke Ellington's jazz music.

        By turns muscular and lyrical, 'The River' is a sweeping full-company work that suggests tumbling rapids and meandering streams on a journey to the sea. Ailey’s allegory of birth, life and rebirth abounds with water references, from the spinning “Vortex” solo to the romantic “Lake” duet, and from the powerful “Falls” quartet to the joyful “Giggling Rapids.” The choreography demonstrates Ailey’s admiration for classical ballet, but retains the modern and jazz influences found in all his work. “'The River' shows Mr. Ailey at his inventive best,” declared The New York Times.

              Singer/guitarist John Pizzarelli, a master in the art of reinventing jazz classics, celebrates the music of Duke Ellington, undeniably one of the most prominent musical icons of the 20th century. Set for release on February 23, 2010, Rockin' In Rhythm: A Tribute to Duke Ellington (TEL-31921-02) is Pizzarellis first ever Ellington recording and his ninth release with Telarc International, a Division of Concord Music Group. Pizzarelli was still a very young musician when Ellington died in May 1974, but thanks to his father veteran guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli he would eventually learn much about jazz's most important composer. Dukes music was an integral part of any set my father played, says Pizzarelli. I heard a tremendous amount of his music listening to my Dad and then through performing with him. There are some many beautiful melodies and so many discoveries to be made on any given night.
