Afro Bossa Ellington Duke 1965
During a performance of the Duke Ellington in 1965 we hear the Duke presenting one of his recent compositions "Afro Bossa". Drummer Sam Woodyard sets the pattern and there is ample room for all of Ellington's star musicians. One notices back in the trumpet section Duke's son Mercer. He would would lead his father's band after Duke's death in 1974
