Duke Ellington – Anthology (3cd set)

Format: 3CD
Bar-code: 5060432022983
Cat No: NOT3CD298


Equally at home in the dance hall and the concert hall, nobody did more to make jazz a serious art form than Duke Ellington. He was one of the most important creative forces in the music of the twentieth century. His influence on classical music, popular music, and, of course, jazz, simply cannot be overstated. As Miles Davis once said: “Some day all the jazz musicians should get together in one place and get down on their knees and thank Duke.”
