Overview

The five-disc, 2009 Duke Ellington collection Original Album Series brings together a handful of the legendary bandleader's 1960s albums. Included here are Will Big Bands Ever Come Back?, Jazz Violin Sessions, Mary Poppins, Ellington '65, and Ellington '66. Although these albums found Ellington attempting to compete in the post-swing rock & roll era with a more commercial sound, they are still great jazz albums that should appeal to most Ellington fanatics.
