This album is for anyone who ever wondered what it would be like to be at a live Duke Ellington show. Sophisticated Duke is exactly how it was.
As this is a live period recording, we have cleaned and re-mastered these songs without over doing it and taking the “shine off the apple”. We have included Duke Ellington’s comments and introduction to songs. This is an amazing look into a Duke Ellington show.
A must for all jazz fans and Ellington fans alike.
