Here is the patriotic DUKE ELLINGTON AND HIS FAMOUS ORCHESTRA performing weekly radio broadcasts in 1945 (plus one from 1943) to help sell U.S. war bonds and boost the public's morale - not least that of black folk.The band's line-up at this time was outstanding, featuring great performances by Ellington soloists such as RAY NANCE, LAWRENCE BROWN, JOHNNY HODGES and BEN WEBSTER, along with vocalists JOYA SHERRILL, KAY DAVIS and AL HIBBLER. The excitement and seamless professionalism of Ellington's Orchestra of the mid-1940's is in abundant evidence throughout the two-hours worth of music on this double CD compilation.
