Duke Ellington (1899-1974) brought a level of style and sophistication to Jazz that it hadn't seen before. Although he was a gifted piano player, his orchestra was his principal instrument. Like Jelly Roll Morton before him, he considered himself to be a composer and arranger, rather than just a musician. This collection features 24 Duke Ellington tracks by some of the biggest names in jazz history: Clifford Brown, Johnny Hartman, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins and many more. This is an essential collection.
