During 1925-74, Duke Ellington led a pacesetting orchestra full of unique individuals who came together to play the leader's innovative music. Although many of Ellington's songs became standards, no other orchestra sounded like his. Dating from 1971, these two concert performances feature the Duke Ellington Orchestra still in prime form, alternating such old favorites as "Take The 'A' Train," "Rockin' In Rhythm" and a hits medley with newer material. At 72, Ellington proves to still be a masterful pianist and a genial host to an enthusiastic European audience.
