Even if your wife is gone you can still have a decent time when one of your favorite songs plays in your favorite bar when your favorite bartender is working. @oldfieldsliquorroom @lexicarpie #inasentimentalmood #jazz #coltrane #dukeellington #moodygrams #music #mixology

Ellington Indigos- the title says it all- the tracks on this album highlight several shades of indigo- from midnight blue to true blue.  It’s also one of the more misunderstood albums of the Ellington canon: the liners consider this set suitable for dancing.  The set itself is quite downtempo, and there are places where Ellington, for effect, picks up the pace for a few bars and then drops the tempo back down.  It definitely swings, but not the standard four on the floor. AllMusic considers it unexciting, easy listening.  I guess the title, “Songs for Distingue Lovers” was already taken by a certain Miss Holiday... This album’s version for me of Prelude to a Kiss is essential, the other tracks are all gorgeous interpretations.  Ozzie Bailey’s vocals on Autumn Leaves are mannered and not for everyone’s taste, but for me, endearing.  Well recorded, as is all of Duke’s Columbia studio output, with this particular album signed by a certain Mr. Hodges and a Mr. Ellington.  This was a dollar bin find from January, 2016, and it took me a couple weeks to figure out whose scrawling was on the back cover. ☺️ #dukeellington #billystrayhorn #johnnyhodges #ellingtonindigos #columbiarecords #vinyl #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinyladdict #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #vinylgram #vinyljazz #vinyljunkie #vinylrecords #jazzvinyl #jazzrecords #jazzalbum #jazzcollector #jazzcollection #jazzmessenger #vintagejazz #recordcollection #recordcollector #records #cratedigging #cratedigger #albumcover #albumcoverart

My jazz collection (work in progress)
On this day of Black History Month, Feb. 24, 2009 Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington
became the first African-American to be featured on a U.S. coin. 
Ellington was a composer, pianist, and bandleader of a jazz orchestra. He gained a national profile through his orchestra's appearances at the Cotton Club in Harlem and in the 1930s as his orchestra toured in Europe. His reputation continued to rise even after he died, as in 1999 he was awarded a special posthumous Pulitzer Prize for music.

Duke Ellington 1956. The music festival concept was still fairly young when Duke Ellington and his Orchestra arrived in Newport, Rhode Island in July 1956 to perform what would become one of the most mythically transcendent concerts in jazz history. As legend has it, Ellington told saxophonist Paul Gonsalves to blow as long as he wanted during his solo on "Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue." The resultant six-minute saxophone rave-up blew the roof off the heavens, triggering a massive collective audience ecstasy that can still be heard reverberating on the best-selling "Ellington in Newport," recorded for Columbia Records, the Duke's new label. Columbia staff photographer Don Hunstein caught "Mr. Hi-Fi of '56" outside his tour bus at the festival, taking care of business. #dukeellington #jazz #classicjazz #oldjazz #newportjazzfestival #newportjazz #1956 #sirduke #composer #americanlegend #jazzlegend #music #americanjazz

@dannycity444 was kind enough to share this with me, a photo of the view from 340 Riverside Drive, #11A, a property he just sold. My parents and I lived here when I was a child (it was a rental back then). Duke Ellington’s sister Ruth James lived down the street, and her son Stevie and I used to watch TV and have popcorn together when we were tots. #newyork #newyorkcity #dukeellington #dukeellingtonblvd #nostalgia #hudsonriver #riversidedrive #manhattan #jazzbrat

@alvinailey with Black History Month // Duke Ellington •
Did you know Alvin Ailey created fourteen dances to music by the great Duke Ellington? One of them is ‘Night Creature’ which the company performed for the students in the Miami area this morning. SWIPE⬅️ to see the company perform the last section of Ailey’s ‘Night Creature.’ •

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974) was an American composer, pianist, and bandleader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death in a career spanning over fifty years.
Born in Washington, D.C., Ellington was based in New York City from the mid-1920s onward, and gained a national profile through his orchestra's appearances at the Cotton Club in Harlem. In the 1930s, his orchestra toured in Europe. Though widely considered to have been a pivotal figure in the history of jazz, Ellington embraced the phrase "beyond category" as a liberating principle, and referred to his music as part of the more general category of American Music, rather than to a musical genre such as jazz. Ellington earned 12 Grammy awards from 1959 to 2000, three of which were posthumous. #BlackHistoryMonth #DukeEllington #AlvinAiley #NightCreature #Aileyontour #AileyinMiami #Miami #GivingDanceBack #Musician #Artists
