Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: Who can argue with the brilliance of the work of Duke and his big bands with their characteristic potent brass sections? This is a small sampling of his work. It includes several tracks featuring Johnny Hodges (sax) and seven previously unreleased tracks. The DVD is a further embellishment including a chapter on record making, an interview with Duke and excellent liner notes making this a prized package for jazz fans.
