Product Description:

SKIN DEEP is a 20-song retrospective of jazz legend Duke Ellington. This digitally remastered CD is packed in a digipak, and includes a booklet with rare photos, session information, biographical details, and more.
Great Britain's Proper imprint has been releasing terrific multi-disc boxed collections by many major artists in the genres of jazz, blues, and country since the 1990s. On occasion, they've also issued double-disc retrospectives. These offerings have been long on detail in terms of not only volume, but great sound, accurate discographical information, and best of all, they retail at a very attractive price point. Which brings us to their single-disc series, A Proper Introduction To. In this case, it's Duke Ellington, and most of the material here is from the great version of the Duke Ellington Orchestra that included Jimmy Blanton and Ben Webster. It's a so-so portrait of that group, but as far as portraying Ellington's development and towering contribution, a 20-song collection isn't enough for a man who issued well over 400 records during his lifetime. ~ Thom Jurek
