"Ellington Ending: Duke Ellington 1967-73"

6 posts in this topic

Up a bit early in honor of Ellington's birthday today, here's this week's Night Lights show, featuring music from The New Orleans Suite, the second and third sacred concerts, the Goutelas and Latin American Suites, the Afro-Eurasian Eclipse, and more, as well as commentary from Michael McGerr and numerous musical outtakes at the bottom of the post:

Very nice program David.  It makes me want to pull out several recordings that I haven't heard for far too long.

Kudos also to Michael for his commentary.

So glad you enjoyed it, JT!  Michael has provided invaluable commentary for numerous Night Lights programs.. .I almost created a "Michael McGerr" tag for this post. ^_^  There is actually a Michael McGerr tag on the Night Lights site.

I really enjoyed this show as well. I've always been a fan of late-career Ellington, and like Jazztrain, it sent me off to my less-than-organized music racks in search of some discs that were overdue for a spin.
