Patrick FReMEAUXThis 4-CD set was produced by Alain Pailler and Tony Baldwin from meticulously restored originals that let you relive the Duke Ellington Orchestra's golden age as though you were right there. These legendary 1940-1942 sessions include Ellington classics such as Ko-Ko, Take The 'A' Train, Perdido and Harlem Air-Shaft, masterfully arranged by the Duke himself and his right-hand man Billy Strayhorn. The set prominently features several Swing Era giants at their very peak: Cootie Williams and Ray Nance on trumpets; cornettist Rex Stewart; trombone players Joe Nanton and Lawrence Brown; Barney Bigard on clarinet; Johnny Hodges, Ben Webster and Harry Carney on saxophones, plus the brilliant young doublebass prodigy Jimmy Blanton. It's a milestone in jazz history and makes essential listening.Patrick FremeauxCD1 : JACK THE BEAR - KO-KO - MORNING GLORY - CONGA BRAVA - CONCERTO FOR COOTIE - COTTON TAIL - NEVER NO LAMENT - DUSK - BOJANGLES (A PORTRAIT OF BILL ROBINSON) - A PORTRAIT OF BERT WILLIAMS - BLUE GOOSE - HARLEM AIR-SHAFT - ALL TOO SOON - RUMPUS IN RICHMOND - SEPIA PANORAMA - IN A MELLOTONE - WARM VALLEY - ACROSS THE TRACK BLUES - CHLOe (SONG OF THE SWAMP) - THE SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK - TAKE THE 'A' TRAIN - BLUE SERGE - JUMPIN' PUNKINS.
