All of Django’s recordings of songs by the great American composers George Gershwin and Duke Ellington.
Compiled from various sessions in Django’s discography, these selections feature a wide variety of accompaniment and arrangements. The common thread between them all, however, is Django’s incomparable improvisational genius. All of the preserved recordings from a 1946 Chicago concert showcasing Django with the Ellington band have also been included here, as well as both takes of Django’s composition paying tribute to Duke.

Includes 12-page booklet
