Sophisticated Lady [RCA]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This RCA CD reissue contains 19 Duke Ellington recordings from 1940-42 and 1945-46 and serves as a good introduction to Ellington's music of that era although veteran collectors will already have the material. Among the gems are the original version of "Take the 'A' Train," "I Got It Bad," "Perdido," "Caravan," a rendition of "It Don't Mean a Thing" that uses the voices of Joya Sherrill, Kay Davis and Marie Ellington and "St. Louis Blues."
