Bigbands Live: Duke Ellington Orchestra


Add To Wish List + $18.99 - This item has been discontinued, and will no longer be available once out of stock.

Ellington considered two topics to be off-limits: illness and death. It was for this reason he refused to make a will to the last, fearful of tempting fate and provoking his own demise. He was able to maintain his orchestra (“the most important thing in my life”) with the millions he earned from Tempo; some players stayed with him for decades. Almost constantly on the road following his comeback in Newport in 1956, his career staging posts were largely marked by the studio recordings. He released around 35 albums between 1960 and 1967 alone, including adaptations of classical works. After the death of Duke’s alter ego Billy Strayhorn and throwing caution to the wind while refusing to rely solely on time-served hits, Duke and his 14 musicians launch themselves into this new adventure.
