Best Of Duke Ellington & His Famous Orchestra

LP (Item 591450) Capitol, Early 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Includes "Warm Valley", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Satin Doll", "Caravan", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Black And Tan Fantasy", "Passion Flower", and more.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Duophonic Starline pressing with red and white star labels.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Flying Dutchman, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great high concept composition from Duke Ellington – one that rivals the earlier brilliance of his Liberian Suite! Like that one, vocals are a key part of this long-form work – a special performance done for the Century Of Negro Progress Exposition in Chicago in 1963 – with an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Hi Fi Ellington Uptown
Columbia, 1953. Near Mint-
One of Duke Ellington's standout sides for Columbia – a strong recording that revisits many of the best elements of his earlier work, and offers up some more sophisticated scoring for the 50s – thanks to extended track length in the LP generation! The tunes here are older ones, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Plas Johnson

This Must Be The Plas!
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
A gem of a session from tenorman Plas Johnson – recorded for Capitol with small group backing that includes organ, piano, vibes, and a bit of guitar – all grooving in a mode that's much more suited to Johnson's deeply riffing style than the easy arrangements of much of his other work. ...

Ronnie Laws

Mr Nice Guy
Capitol, 1983. Near Mint-
Ronnie Laws really makes a big move into the soul field with this one – quite a big record for him back in the day, and a set that helped Laws reach an even wider audience at the time! Ronnie sings as much as playing sax on the set – and he also handles a fair bit of keyboards too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Jazz
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
Stan reprises his famous modernist swing in a great little album that's one of his best works from the early 60s. The tracks are longish, with the mixture of dark shading and breakout solos that grace some of his best early work – and although the players in the group aren't the famous west ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Encores (10-inch)
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good
A collection of some of Kenton's early 50s hits. Most of the tracks that are included were arranged by Pete Rugolo and they include "Peg O' My Heart", "He's Funny That Way", "Capitol Punishment", "Painted Rhythm", "Lover", "Somnambulism", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Time
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+
Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great! The album features arrangements by Johnny Richards – clever explorations in time that still swing with that nice Richards touch, played by a group that features a number of lesser-known younger players, including Don Menza, who' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
One of the hippest Stan Kenton albums of the 60s – a set of original compositions by Dee Barton – Stan's drummer at the time, and a composer to rival the great ones who contributed to the Kenton group of the 40s and 50s! Barton's work here is totally great – modern, but never too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ebony In Rhythem
Capitol (Canada), Mid 60s. Very Good+
A very unusual set from 60s Canada – a set that features a unique blend of jazz, vocal, and Caribbean modes – all handled by the large ensemble pictured on the cover! Some tracks are vocal, some are instrumental, and there's a nicely varied approach throughout – all directed by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963. Good Gatefold
Soaring and soulful work from the legendary John Coltrane – a tremendous live set that's one of his best early 60s albums! The groove is open and free – filled with pulsating modal rhythms, and handled with a slightly more relaxed feeling than some of Trane's studio work from the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
