Columbia / Legacy
  • 1. Mood Indigo
  • 2. Sophisticated Lady
  • 3. The Tattooed Bride
  • 4. Solitude

For Ellington even his established pieces were works in progress. In this beautifully recorded relaxed outing from 1950 the Duke has taken a few concert favourites,extended and re-orchestrated them with added solo space for the many virtuosos in his band. Great music arranged by a Master and played wonderfully well at a bargain price. Not much else to add just buy, play, enjoy!
