Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington, geboren 29. April 1899 in Washington, D.C., war einer der einflussreichsten und wichtigsten amerikanischen Musiker. Der Pianist, Komponist und Bandleader, der den Begriff "American Music" für passender als Jazz empfand, wird hier in all seiner Genialität und Herrlichkeit präsentiert - mit siebzehn seiner besten Alben aus den 1950er Jahren, die so vielfältig wie hervorragend sind. Die sorgfältig ausgewählten und digital aufbereiteten Alben in diesem 10-CD-Set decken ein breites Spektrum ab - von den verehrten Klassikern bis hin zu absoluten Raritäten. Die Sammlung beginnt mit dem legendären Piano-Duo von Ellington und seinem langjährigen Mitarbeiter Billy Strayhorn, gepaart mit "Ellington Uptown", einem 51/52er-Album mit einigen der wichtigsten Aufnahmen von Ellington, wie z.B. "The Mooche", "Take The A Train" oder " A Tone Parallel To Harlem ". CD 2 beginnt mit "The Duke Ellington Plays", eine wunderbar seltene Aufnahme des Dukes an seinem bevorzugten Instrument (und ein Vorläufer des legendären Sets "Piano In The Foreground/ Background", die beide auf CD 5 zu finden sind). "At Bal Masque" rundet CD 2 ab, ein Album über das Scott Yanow auf allmusic.com schrieb: "Die Musik funktioniert super für Ellington, und seinem All-Star-Orchester gelingt es müden Revival Swing in elegante Tanz Musik und swingenden Jazz zu verwandeln." Obwohl nicht das definierende Album des Meisters, ist At Bal Masque dennoch ein Überraschungserfolg." Zwei wunderbare Suiten des Dukes finden auf CD 3 ihren Platz: seine Shakespeare Hommage "Such Weet Thunder", aus dem Jahr 1957, und sein tief religiöses Album "Black, Brown and Beige", mit Gospel-Superstar Mahalia Jackson, Frontsängering des berühmten Orchesters mit Musikern, wie Clark Terry und Paul Gonsalves als Solisten. Der Soundtrack zu Otto Premingers "Anatomy Of A Murder" findet auf CD 4 Platz, zusammen mit zwei eher "dukishen" Interpretationen von Edvard Griegs "Peer Gynt" und Billy Strayhorns "Suite Thursday". CD 6 präsentiert die seltene "Duke Ellington presents" sowie die fantastische "Blue Rose", Ellingtons Duett mit der Sängerin Rosemary Clooney, der Tante von Hollywood-Star George Clooney. Zwei seltene Alben finden sich auch auf CD 7. Die Kooperationen des Dukes mit Satchmo, dem singenden Trompeter par excellence, und dem anderen großen Big Band Leader seiner Zeit: Count Basie. Das berühmte "Newport 1958" Konzert featured Gerry Mulligan mit seinem Orchester (CD 8), während CD 9 die unglaubliche Hörbuch-Oper "A Drum Is A Woman" präsentiert. Von Ellington und Strayhorn geschrieben, beschreibt sie die Reise des Rhythmus' von den Inseln in die Stadt - ein seltenes Vergnügen! Nicht zuletzt finden wir Duke Ellington und seinen Alt-Sax-Spieler Johnny Hodges "Side By Side" auf einer Aufnahme. Das Album wurde mit 4 Sternen im Downbeat 1959 ausgezeichnet
