This set contains the only known extant recording  of Strayhorn's  complete arrangement of Chelsea Bridge by the Ellington band.  (Something I  stumbled across by misunderstanding  what Walter van de Leure wrote in his book.    He didn't know it existed either. )

From the first volume of the Columbia Albums box sets.

Just love this album!

Me too. I also have something claiming to be "The Complete Ellington Indigoes" and a Gold hi-def version.  I first got it from the Columbia record club when it was just  released and probably have owned more versions of it than anything except KOB  (which i also received from the Columbia Record club when it was new).

I have a number of versions too. Two early pressings, one mono, one stereo. The late eighties LP and CD reissue. A gray market "Complete" cd and the Impex Records gold CD. Probably will be more in the future! I love it that much.

Annie Ross Sings a Song with Mulligan!

I'm sure I don't have perfect pitch, but does it sound to anyone else as if, at times, Ms. Ross sings a little flat on this recording? If so, could it have something to do with the fact that there's no piano on the date and that some singers need a chordal instrument backing them? Or am I just hearing things wrong?

Not sure about "flat" singing ....
