THE MONO VERSION APPEARS HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON CD!!!

Presented here both in its Stereo and Mono versions (the Mono version appears here on CD for the first time ever), this album was Duke Ellington and John Coltrane’s only recorded encounter ever. For the occasion, Trane and Duke were accompanied by the bassist and drummer of their respective groups (who alternated from track to track), Aaron Bell and Sam Woodyard (from Duke’s rhythm section), and Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones (from Trane’s rhythm section). “I was really honored to have the opportunity of working with Duke”, explained the saxophonist following their collaboration.

Four Ellington-related tunes performed by Coltrane at different sessions have been added here as a bonus, as well as five of Ellington’s other versions of songs from the album, and John Coltrane’s Quartet reading of “Big Nick”, his only original composition on Duke Ellington & John Coltrane.

JOHN COLTRANE, tenor & soprano sax
DUKE ELLINGTON, piano
