Digitally remastered and expanded edition including two bonus tracks. This release contains the complete original 1959 classic album Festival Session, on which Duke Ellington introduces new long compositions for his orchestra that he had been preparing during the previous months. This is evidenced by the two extended live versions of 'Copout Extension' and 'Idiom '59'. Two of the album's best pieces, they were recorded at Newport two months before the studio session and are presented here as bonus tracks. Poll Winners. 2010.
