Jazz Impressions of Eurasia is a studio album inspired by the quartet’s 1958 world tour sponsored by the American state department, during which they played 80 concerts in 14 countries, including Turkey, Iran, Iraq, India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, over three months. The album precedes the somewhat similar concept of The Far East Suite by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, inspired by a similar State Department world tour, which appeared eight years later.
Columbia 30th St. Studios, New York, July 28 & 30, and August 23, 1958.
