Digitally remastered by Sean Nova (Delta Mastering, Los Angeles, California).
A selection of recordings made during Duke Ellington's extended engagement at Harlem's legendary Cotton Club between 1927 and 1930, AT THE COTTON CLUB collects popular hits of the day, like Dorothy Fields' "Arabian Lover" and "Hot Feet," as well as Ellington's own "Creole Rhapsody Part 1" and the crowd-pleasing "Jungle Nights in Harlem." This residency saw the Ellington orchestra's first nationwide exposure via weekly radio broadcasts, and these recordings find the nascent band, particularly clarinetist Barney Bigard and trumpeter Cootie Williams, the latter of whom had recently replaced Bubber Miley, in full swing.
