Ellington, Duke & Johnny Hodges - Back To BackVendor: Jazz Wax Records
NEW VINYL LP ON JAZZ WAX RECORDS 2010
180 GRAM VINYL.
These distinctive small-group sessions, featuring Duke Ellington as pianist in a blues context, are part of a group of recordings issued under the confusing titles Back to Back and Side by Side, and further reissued under the not particularly distinctive name of Blues Summit. But there should be no confusion about the high quality of music that came out of these sessions -- it is all "cooking with gas" as the expression goes.
