Prior to Newport, Duke Ellington's band had been in a creative and commercial downturn-so there was little buildup to this set. Now part of jazz lore, it’s immortalized for the riot-inducing 27-chorus solo by tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves on Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue (where Ellington can be heard urging him on as the crowd erupts) and several other tracks that fed off the crowd’s energy, particularly Skin Deep and a stompin’ Jeep’s Blues. It's the recording that made Ellington the beloved elder statesman we know him as today

Duke Ellington and his Orchestra is perhaps the greatest of all Jazz bands. The group stayed together for over fifty years and recorded and wrote some of America's greatest music. The band started in New York City under name of the Washingtonians in 1923, they then briefly became known as Duke Ellington and his Kentucky Club Orchestra, then as Duke Ellington and his Cotton Club Orchestra from 1927 to 1930. It was through weekly radio broadcasts from the Cotton Club that the orchestra gained nationwide exposure and became famous.

Carefree Cheerful Fun Light Lively Playful Sophisticated Swaggering Warm. Duke Ellington & His World Famous Orchestra (1946-1947). This mid-priced triple-CD box (originally five separate LPs) contains 64 tracks recorded by Ellington and his band for radio broadcast between March 28, 1946 and June 10, 1947. This was a period in which the Ellington band was, if anything, underrecorded; he'd ended his longtime stay on RCA-Victor and was moving to Musicraft and then on to Columbia, and the move between labels left Ellington less well represented in the studio than he might otherwise have been with a long-term contract.
