Duke Ellington: Duke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins 1962 (Limited 180gm LP) 2022 Release Date: 5/13/2022
Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Even though Duke Ellington and Coleman Hawkins had both been well-known jazzmen since the early 1920s, it wasn't until 1962 - at least 20 years after Duke first suggested it - that these two recorded their only session together.
High points include an exuberant "The Jeep Is Jumpin'," an interesting remake of "Mood Indigo," and a few new Ellington pieces. Verve Acoustic Sounds Series features transfers from analog tapes.
