A terrific collection of ten Duke Ellington recordings at an unbelievable price.
1.Take The 'A' Train
7.Johnny Come Lately
9.I Don't Mind
10.Drawing Room Blues
This inexpensive entry-level primer to the works of Duke Ellington's right-hand man Billy Strayhorn features favorites like the upbeat "Take the 'A' Train" and the gorgeous "Chelsea Bridge," in addition to the spare, reflective "Drawing Room Blues" and the somber "Blood Count." There's also a little-heard song, "Strange Feeling," which is very much in the introspective "Lush Life" vein.
