Solitude
Duke Ellington Lyrics


In my solitude
You haunt me
With dreadful ease
Of days gone by

In my solitude
You taunt me
With memories
That never die
I sit in my chair
And filled with despair
There's no one could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad

In my solitude
I'm afraid
Dear Lord above
Send back my love
I sit in my chair

Filled with despair
There's no one, no one
No onecould be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad

In my solitude
I'm afraid
Dear Lord above
Send back my love

Wow - the orchestra from back in the 1930s was incredibly smooth and lyrical.  Can only imagine how good this might sound with today's technology ... the older I get, the more I appreciate the timelessness of the Duke's work - probably America's greatest composer.

Lawrence Mallette

Certainly our greatest composer in the Jazz-Pop category, head and shoulders above the rest. His insistence on expressive playing by his members, especially evident here, was another great asset.

This tune bleeds loneliness :(

María S O

Yes, my friend. He composed this music to share with us, and to make us sigh :S

Bren Sa Or -> i get that too- it goes straight to heart doesn't it, like he understands that, he has lived that . . . .

Trombonology Erstwhile

One of the most expressive recordings ever, I think.  Flawless!

So thankful for Duke Ellington who paved the way for so many other musicians. The Mozart of the Jazz age 😎
