Description
This generous compilation of Duke Ellington's arrangements—which have set a lofty standard for orchestral jazz from the 1920s to the present day—includes "Caravan," "Take the 'A' Train," "East St. Louis Toodle-oo," "Creole Love Call," "Sophisticated Lady," "Solitude," "Passion Flower," "Ko-Ko," "Jack the Bear," "Cotton Tail," "Perdido," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," "Do Nothing 'til You Hear From Me," "The Jeep Is Jumpin'," "Lonesome Lullaby," "In a Mellow Tone," "Day Dream," and more. "Ellington composed directly 'on' his band … whom he chose for their idiosyncratic styles," writes Terry Teachout, the author of a biography of Ellington. Credit must be given to Billy Strayhorn as well, who co-wrote some of the most enduringly beautiful compositions in the Ellington canon.
