This is the extraordinary recording debut of jazz phenomenon Anaïs Reno, who made it in 2020 at the age of 16. Reno has already won accolades for her dedication to the Great American Songbook. She recently received the Julie Wilson Award, and in 2019 won the Mabel Mercer Foundation competition for high school students. For this album she has chosen 12 tunes by two master writers: Duke Ellington (1899-1974) and Billy Strayhorn 1915-67), creators of some of the most challenging and sophisticated material in the Great American Songbook. Reno combines beloved hits such as “Mood Indigo,” “Take the ‘A’ Train,” “Lush Life” and “Caravan” with lesser-known but equally memorable tunes like “A Flower Is a Lovesome Thing” and “It’s Kind of Lonesome Out Tonight,” all backed by a stellar group of jazz musicians led by pianist Emmet Cohen, who also did the arrangements with Reno. “I have a very personal relationship with these songs,” says Reno. “Somehow I believe that the music of Ellington & Strayhorn understands me. This is why I want to honor it.” Acclaimed jazz historian Will Friedwald, who has written the liner notes for the 12-page booklet, comments that “At 16, Anaïs achieved what precious few adults ever accomplish: namely, to actually enhance our appreciation and enjoyment of the Ellington-Strayhorn canon. Whether working together or separately, the two of them were always on the same page, both metaphorically and literally. And now, so is Anaïs Reno.”
