 Notes & Reviews
2013 two CD collection. Recorded between August 1979 and January 1980, Sophisticated Lady: The Duke Ellington Collection features six previously unreleased recordings along with classic tracks originally from Vaughan's 1980 albums of Duke's music, Duke Ellington Song Book One and Duke Ellington Song Book Two. What makes this reissue especially significant is the inclusion of the six unreleased recordings of arrangements by the peerless Benny Carter which opens this collection of the Vaughan-Ellington recordings, presented chronologically by recording date. These are not alternate takes. They are recordings of entirely different arrangements of the songs than those that were released on the original Ellington Songbook albums.
