Artist: Ellington, Duke / Coltrane, John
Title: Duke Ellington & John Coltrane (reissue)
Product Type: VINYL LP

For this classic encounter, Duke Ellington "sat in" with the John Coltrane Quartet for a set dominated by Ellington's songs; some performances have his usual sidemen (bassist Aaron Bell and drummer Sam Woodyard) replacing Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones in the group. Although it would have been preferable to hear Coltrane play in the Duke Ellington orchestra instead of the other way around, the results are quite rewarding. Their version of "In a Sentimental Mood" is a high point, and such numbers as "Take the Coltrane," "Big Nick," and "My Little Brown Book" are quite memorable. Ellington always recognized talent, and Coltrane seemed quite happy to be recording with a fellow genius.

1.1 In a Sentimental Mood
1.2 Take the Coltrane
1.3 Big Nick
1.4 Stevie
1.5 My Little Brown Book
1.6 Angelica
1.7 Feeling of Jazz
