Angel Eyes (Duke Pearson album). Angel Eyes is the third album by American pianist and arranger Duke Pearson featuring performances by Pearson with Thomas Howard, and Lex Humphries originally recorded in 1961/62 for the Jazzline label but not released until 1968 on the Polydor label. The majority of the tracks (without the title track) were released on CD in 1991 on the Black Lion label as Bags Groove with three additional takes.

Columbus Calvin Duke Pearson J. s debut album, Profile, launched his career as pianist, composer, arranger, and following the death of Ike Quebec, A&R man and frequent producer of Blue Note records, up until 1971,. Duke’s playing owes much to Wynton Kelly, as probably many in his day, but with more lyrical emphasis than rhythmic. The tune are standards mixed with some of his own compositions, the presentation is conventional piano with supporting rhythm section, nothing ground-breaking, but attractive, often very pretty reading of the songs.
