The Duke in Munich


This previously unissued Duke Ellington Orchestra CD contains 24 numbers (66 minutes, including two 9-minute suites), recorded live in Munich, Germany, in 1958. The band consists of practically the same musicians who play much of the same music as performed on Ellingtons famous come-back concert/album, "Newport, 1956". The music performed on the CD is entirely from the Ellington/Billy Strayhorn songbook. Featured soloists are Johnny Hodges (alto sax), Paul Gonsalves (tenor sax), Harry Carney (baritone sax), Clark Terry (trumpet), Britt Woodman (trombone) and Jimmy Hamilton (clarinet). The musicians are obviously having a ball and playing at the top of their powers; there is never a dull moment with many fine solos: check out Johnny Hodges on "Jeeps Blues".
