4 1/2 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

This release presents all existing material related to the legendary 1958 Newport performances by the great Duke Ellington. Eight of the ten tracks present on the original "Newport 1958" LP (Columbia CS 8072) were in fact studio recordings made shortly after the actual concert.

This set combines the complete authentic live sets with the eight studio songs, reuniting for the first time ever all existing material related to the Newport 1958 Ellington performances. Among the evening’s impressive guests are Gerry Mulligan (playing a duet with Harry Carney) and Mahalia Jackson, who sings “Come Sunday” with the band, from Black, Brown and Beige. As a bonus, the original 1956 studio versions of two of the concert tunes, “Feet Bone” and “Just Scratchin’ the Surface”.
