Columbia, 2005, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Classic
O’s Notes: The genius of Duke Ellington is tough to imagine without listening. The Essential Duke Ellington features over 35 of his hits on 2 CDs. This is classic Ellington including “Satin Doll”. “Perdido”, “Drop Me Off In Harlem” and “Mood Indigo”. It is big sound without congestion, classic tunes and strong arrangements. Thanks to Sony for assembling the collection.
