Duke Ellington was one of the most influential composers and bandleaders of the 20th century. In this small group setting, you really get to hear his incredible piano playing, for which he is sometimes not given due credit. Always the arranger, Duke's piano motif at the beginning, with Aaron Bell up high, is one of the most stirring intros of all time.
