 Notes & Reviews
 
Please Note: CD-R Media
 
Directly after World War II, the great Duke Ellington recorded his most ambitious and experimental works. The selections here all hail from that glorious period and feature one of the best line-ups of his famed orchestra including Ray Nance on violin and trumpet, vocalist Kay Davis, who positively shines on 'The Beautiful Indians'; Harry Carney's baritone sax is featured on 'Golden Feather' and the golden alto sax of Johnny Hodges features on 'Magenta Haze'. All selections newly re-mastered. [Note: This product is an authorized, licensed CD-R and is manufactured on demand]
