The Sophisticated Genius

This select compilation of 1930s and '40s Duke Ellington highlights his earlier dance band arrangements, as well as the work of talents like trumpeter Cootie Williams, heard here to best effect on "Concerto for Cootie," and saxophonist Ben Webster, who solos delightfully on "Chelsea Bridge."
