About Duke Ellington

The year is 1928, and an incredible sound is emanating from the stage of the Cotton Club on 125th Street in Harlem. Newly hired bandleader, Duke Ellington, is leading an 11-piece orchestra through a type of orchestral jazz that would soon take the world by storm. Sir Duke's half-century long career was as prolific as it was influential, and a great way to experience Sir Duke's original orchestral jazz style is on vinyl. Thanks to the sellers on eBay, the music selection is home to an abundance of Columbia and RCA Victor Duke Ellington 78 records, including 12-inch 78s featuring Duke Ellington performing with Bing Crosby and Ellington's Famous Orchestra. Duke Ellington LPs also abound, such as numerous live recordings from Carnegie Hall and the Newport Jazz Festival, along with collaborations with artists like Frank Sinatra and John Coltrane. The reliable vinyl sellers offer helpful details about record condition and offer convenient shipping options.
