The Private Collection, Vol. 2: Dance Concerts, California, 1958

The second of ten CDs of previously unissued recordings of Duke Ellington, this set differs from the others by being from a single live session, a dance concert from 1958. The orchestra at the time boasted such stars as trumpeters Shorty Baker, Clark Terry and Ray Nance, trombonists Quentin Jackson and Britt Woodman and a superb saxophone section, although Johnny Hodges is temporarily absent. The music on this CD sticks to standards (some of which were not usually associated with Duke) and can be thought of as a live version of Indigos although the inclusion of some up-tempo material (including a totally ad-lib "Lady Be Good") adds more variety. A typically excellent example of 1958 Duke Ellington.
