Duke Ellington – Ellington at Newport – Mofi Mono Vinyl

£49.95
HISTORIC LIVE SET TRIGGERED SPONTANEOUS AUDIENCE OUTBURST THAT FED DIRECTLY INTO FEEL, OUTCOME OF PERFORMANCE
It spurred Duke Ellington's comeback into the mainstream. It captures a performance so energetic, wild, unexpected, and unprecedented that the music literally caused thousands of people to jump up and stand on their chairs, worrying officials that a riot might ensue. It is jazz of the highest order, played at an almost rock n' roll pace, and with an enthusiastic pep that confirms Ellington and his ensemble fed off the crowd's reaction as the collective lit into each new stanza. It is Ellington's best-selling album. It is Ellington at Newport.

Duke Ellington – Blues In Orbit – 180G Analogue Productions Vinyl

£55.00
It’s tempting for Blues in Orbit to be overlooked when Duke Ellington’s best albums are discussed, but truly it’s an undisputed gem. There are 11 tracks, none of them is longer than 4:50 and it is all good stuff. There are some familiar favorites such as “In a Mellotone” and “C Jam Blues” as well as less often heard gems like “Blues in Blueprint and “Sweet and Pungent.” It is also in stereo, and the arrangements are superb.

Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges – Back to Back – Verve Records 45RPM 200g 2 Disc Vinyl

£75.00
Several times in his career star alto-saxophone soloist Johnny Hodges struck out on his own, only to return each time to Duke Ellington's band. There seemed to be a constant tension between them, though it was old hat by the time of this recording. In the enclosed notes, critic Michael Ullman examines this complex relationship, suggesting that the blues classics chosen for this program may have been neutral ground. A place where Ellington's unique piano playing could come to the fore and Hodges' irrepressible sensuality could have free rein. This is one of the very best small-group records Ellington ever made — a relaxed, perfectly integrated set of music that truly swings the blues.

Duke Ellington: The Great Paris Concert – Pure Pleasure Records

£45.95
This set came about, in part, as a result of Ellington's signing to Frank Sinatra's Reprise label in November 1962, with the ending of his exclusive contract to Columbia. Six numbers from the three Paris dates were initially edited and released by Reprise as part of the ten-song Duke Ellington's Greatest Hits, but the bulk of the performances from those shows didn't surface until many years later as The Great Paris Concert on two LPs.
