The tremendously detailed audio effect achieved by Columbia's engineers is brought back to life on this 200-gram LP from Analogue Productions. You want Duke and his men at their best, this is it!
Dizzy's spectacular trumpet blooms amidst the Ellingtonian aggregate. The sometimes tender, sometimes shouting blues style of Jimmy Rushing provides nice contrast in one of the most varied and satisfying Ellington recordings ever.
So what have we done to perfect this brilliant reissue? Mastering by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tape, for starters. Naturally we turned to our own Quality Record Pressings for the finest 200-gram, dead-silent background pressing. Top it off with a Stoughton Printing gatefold tip-on jacket with beautiful full-size inner pictures and you've got an audiophile's dream. A can't miss for your collection!
