Product Description:

One of the most popular big band leaders of (and beyond) the Swing Era and one of the greatest American composers ever, Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington had a truly incomparable style. The Duke's compositions meld the essence of the blues with elegant swing, Tin Pan Alley pop, and Impressionist-era classical music. All these qualities are captured on Living Era's two-disc 22-track CREOLE RHAPSODY, which locates Ellington as he was ascending to one of his finest periods. The engagingly lush, atmospheric tunes here include "Caravan," "Mood Indigo," and "Daybreak Express." This is essential American music.
