Duke Ellington – Festival Session
Duke Ellington was an American composer, pianist, and leader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death over a career spanning more than six decades. Although widely considered to have been a pivotal figure in the history of jazz, Ellington embraced the phrase “beyond category” as a liberating principle and referred to his music as part of the more general category of American Music rather than to a musical genre such as jazz. Festival Session was recorded at Columbia Records 30th Street Studio, New York on September 8, 1959 and was released the same year.
