  • Description

    A superb selection of material here from another jazz icon: 'Back to Back' (1965) is the famous collaboration between Ellington and alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges; 'Live at The Whitney' (1972) is a rare piano-trio date recorded at New York's Whitney School Of American Art; and 'Soul Call' (1967) is a classic big-band album recorded live at the Antibes Jazz Festival, featuring barnstorming versions of 'Caravan' and 'Skin Deep'.
