Duke Ellington's work is a decades-spanning cornucopia. This twentieth century genius's modernity erupts from each of the 43 tracks in this anthology, which brings together recordings made between 1938 and 1957. From simple themes to ambitious sequels: the Duke could do it all! And with a fine musical ear, he was able to track down the best musicians to accompany him. Over the years, his career has served as an incubator and a revelation for large numbers of soloists. The bandleader became so fond of some of his protégés that he concocted mini-concertos to highlight their talents. This double compilation is an anthology of these little-known minor masterpieces, which were mostly not recorded in his official studios. These pieces offer a timeless setting for famous or forgotten virtuosos including Johnny Hodges, Jimmy Hamilton, Cootie Williams, Jimmie Blanton, Britt Woodman, Willie Cook, Quentin Jackson, Al Sears, Cat Anderson, Harry Carney, Rex Stewart, Tyree Glenn, Paul Gonsalves, Clark Terry or Oscar Pettiford. © Max Dembo/Qobuz
