The Ellington band was in top form for this soundtrack. Paul Gonsalves, Johnny Hodges, Harry Carney, Russell Procope and Ray Nance have terrific solos and the reach for the stratosphere trumpet of Cat Anderson is an experience.
The 1999 release on CD contains twenty-six tracks.
I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself.
Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
