Duke ellington prelude to a kiss

Beginning in 1939, Ellington experienced a new surge in creativity, stimulated by the addition of bassist Jimmie Blanton and saxophonist Ben Webster to the band. These musicians brought a driving, rhythmic virtuosity to the orchestra, while adding greater potential to Duke's palette as a composer. Dr. Taylor explains how Blanton expanded the rhythmic vocabulary of the orchestra, as exemplified in numbers like "Jack the Bear," "Ko-Ko" and "Cottontail." Webster's riffs would inspire numbers such as "In A Mellow Tone." As always, Ellington's arrangements brought out the best in his stellar corps of virtuoso musicians.

The excellent Jason Vieaux lets loose with a rendition of Duke Ellington's "In A Sentimental Mood." It's so nice to see a high level classical guitarist embrace jazz ...

Really great arrangement and playing! Here’s more of Ellington’s music on classical guitar, played by Nemanja Ostoich:

The Ellington band toured Europe often after World War II; it also played in Asia (1963–64, 1970), West Africa (1966), South America (1968), and Australia (1970) and frequently toured North America . Despite this grueling schedule, some of Ellington’s musicians stayed with him for decades; Carney, for example, was a band member for 47 years. For the most part, later replacements fit into roles that had been created by their distinguished predecessors; after 1950, for instance, the Webster-influenced Paul Gonsalves filled the band’s solo tenor saxophone role originated by Webster. There were some exceptions to this generalization, such as trumpeter-violinist Ray Nance and high-note trumpet specialist Cat Anderson.
