Duke Ellington is seen by many as one of the frontrunners of Jazz and as one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. He was a part of the Harlem Renaissance and many feel that because of him, Jazz gained recognition as a art form. Many of his instrumental songs have become Jazz standards, and his distinctive style remains a shining beacon in music. Thanks to a stellar performance at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957 there was a renewed interest in his music and his orchestra, and they performed all over the world.

His growl is used to good effect on Sweet & Pungent, a moody, unhurried blues, while the distinctive Blues in Blueprint is a quiet and reflective interlude that finds Nance at his most delicate. On the old standby, C Jam Blues, Nance picks up the violin for an impressive solo turn. Alto Johnny Hodges takes center stage for tender readings of Sentimental Lady and Brown Penny. Blues In Orbit Duke Ellington.

Ellington and company were just back from a European tour when the bulk of this album was recorded at one after-midnight session in New York on December 2, 1959 - the arrangements had to be hastily written out when the copyist failed to appear for the gig. So on the one hand, the band was kicking back with these shorter pieces; on the other, the group was also improvising freely and intensely at various points

Exclusive Prime pricing. Watched Ken Burn's "Jazz" this past year, and his is the best album I have listened to because of that. Gave it away as Christmas presents. Ellington is one of the greatest to ever compose a single note of music.
