Black and Tan Fantasy Ellington Duke 1958
Duke Ellington on tour. From a 1958 concert in Amsterdam (I think it was the Concertgebouw) we see a performance of a famous medley of tunes from the Duke's early repertoire.
Black and Tan Fantasy, Creole Love Call and the Mooche. Through the years Duke would frequently change the featured solo players, the arrangements and the assortment of instrumentation, all to keep it interesting for himself, challinging for the musicians and surprising for his audiences.
