This is a recording of a performance that Duke Ellington and his Orchestra gave at the Newport Jazz Festival on July 4, 1959.
The CD was released in 1989 to honor Ellington's 90th birthday. The beginning portions of disc suffer from poor sound quality due to degradation of the original master tapes, but the recording as a whole is invigorating.
The songs feature several hits, including the first performance of "Idiom 59," a song that Ellington introduces as one composed especially for the concert. As the bluesy suite progresses, the band (which features several especially talented players, including Johnny Hodges and Clark Terry) seems to really be having fun with the new material and the Duke himself throws in some very tasty, funky piano licks.
The masterful bassist Jimmy Woode and dual drummers Jimmy Johnson and Sam Woodyard drive the proceedings with an unerringly ferocious sense of jump-swing. This is a record that celebrates the legacy of Duke Ellington.
