Hi Chuck. I didn't realize that Hal McIntyre and Jack Teagarden were "Canadians".

Just picked up Jazz Party and Masterpieces By Ellington to add to Money Jungle. That makes 3 Ellingtons in my collection, yeehaw! :rolleyes:

Seriously though, Jazz Party is really sounding good to me. Third time through!

:tup:tup:tup:tup

Gonna have to add to that low number of Ellingtons. No doubt about it. Checking the recs in this thread, may go with one of the boxes...when I'm rich.

Masterpieces on deck!

I've since added Blues In Orbit and Meets Count Basie. :tup:tup:tup:tup

Now I want everything from the "favorite Ellington suites" thread.

Hey, Noj, whatever you do don't miss "Anatomy of a Murder". It has the music Ellington wrote for the soundtrack of Otto Preminger's classic film.

Thanks for the suggestion, Don. Between yours and Guy Berger's suggestions my bank account is going to take a beating. Well worth it for Ellington!

Maybe some day I'll have as many Ellington albums as Lon!

Nah, that's not possible. :g

It's really great isn't it, and I love that they added that cool stuff to the original lp material!

The Duke meets Joan Miro during a visit to the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul de Vence on the French Riviera in July 1966.

Sculptures by Miro, Alexander Calder and Albert Giacometti are among the works shown on the video.

Playing with the Duke are bassist John Lamb and drummer Sam Woodyard.

The Duke Ellington orchestra was playing at the Juan les Pins/Antibes jazz festival, a few miles away, at the time.

One would expect an Ellington thread to overflow ...... but no. A corner is too small a place: The Duke needs a palace!

Ubu, I suggest you re-name this thread to make more room for this mountain of music.

The Duke Ellington Orchestra in 1943 with Hodges, Ben Webster, Tricky Sam and others Duke regulars. It's Junior Raglin on bass!

Bichos has got it right. It's on that Duke Ellington CD/DVD from the Centenial Collection.

I filed my copy with the CDs and overlooked it -_-

Scarecrow Press has the fifth edition of W.E. Timner's Ellingtonia announced as available as of next October 28!

Timner Ellingtonia 5th Edition

As this new edition of Timner still hasn't a list of releases for each track/session, I think I'll skip this one and stick to my 4th edition... and save money to pick Massagli/Volonté's "New DESOR", which is the reference work at this point.
