Big Bands Live: Duke Ellington Orchestra on LP

March 6, 1967 big band live recordings from the historic Liederhalle in Stuttgart. This was a year of triumphs: The outstanding trumpeter Cootie Williams, unbelievable in "The Shepherd" and "Tutti for Cootie", was back on board; but then tragedy struck again with the death of Duke's alter ego Billy Strayhorn. Throwing caution to the wind and refusing to rely solely on time-served hits, Duke and his 14 musicians launch themselves into the new adventure. "-Johnny Come Lately" breaks the ice, "Swamp Goo" featuring clarinetist -Russell Procope has the magical "Jungle Sound", Paul Gonsalves' tenor sax dances though "Knob Hill", Cat Anderson's trumpet hit the stratosphere and Harry Carney's baritone horn gives a close-up account of "A Chromatic Love Affair".
