Vocalist Yolanda Duke brings new life to classics from the Great American Songbook with her recording Te Llevo Bajo La Piel. With the aid of a brilliant big band, Duke, who co-produced this effort, channels the work of Errol Garner, George and Ira Gershwin and Cole Porter among others, into a powerfully Latin incarnation. The singer could not have made a smarter choice than to have invited the great Arturo Sandoval to be a part of this effort. Sandoval, along with the other musicians on this recording, contributes to the brilliant sound intertwined with Duke’s impeccably versatile voice. Assisting in this substantial effort are Bobby Porcelli on alto sax and flute, Peter Miranda on baritone sax, Gerry Madera on bass, Sonny Bravo and Champian Fulton on piano and Noah Bless on trombones, among many others. This is an endeavor that is not only a great conceptually, but outstanding in its result .
