Overview

Recorded during Duke Ellington's European tour in 1969, Live at Cabaret l'Alcazar features the celebrated bandleader and his ensemble performing an intimate Parisian club date. While the recording is bootleg quality, it does afford a rare glimpse of Ellington's storied ensemble featuring Johnny Hodges (just prior to his death in 1970) and many other jazz legends. This is a swinging, high-energy date that most Ellington aficionados will want to hear.
