DUKE ELLINGTON PLAYS JAZZ STANDARDS
Although he was a top jazz writer, in his long career Duke Ellington often recorded jazz tunes and popular songs from the pen of other composers. Here is a choice of exceptionally good material of this kind. You will notice that despite their “foreign” origin, the arrangements and the soloists contribute to transform these tunes in pure, great “ellingtonia”.
