Ellington soars to unmatched artistic heights alongside impressive jazz stars including Dizzy Gillespie, Johnny Hodges and Jimmy Rushing!

The tremendously detailed audio effect achieved by Columbia's engineers is brought back to life on this 180-gram LP from Analogue Productions. You want Duke and his men at their best, this is it!

Duke Ellington called his music "American Music" rather than jazz, and liked to describe those who impressed him as "beyond category." He remains one of the most influential figures in jazz, if not in all American music and is widely considered as one of the 20th century's best known African American personalities. He received 13 Grammy Awards and was honored with the French Legion of Honor in 1973. Posthumous recognition of his work include a special award citation from the Pulitzer Prize Board.

Dizzy's spectacular trumpet blooms here amidst the Ellingtonian aggregate. The sometimes tender, sometimes shouting blues style of Jimmy Rushing provides nice contrast in one of the most varied and satisfying Ellington recordings ever. Originally released on Columbia Records in 1959, Jazz Party In Stereo contains a formidable gallery of jazz stars including Dizzy Gillespie, Jimmy Rushing, Johnny Hodges, Clark Terry, Paul Gonsalves, and more!

So what has been done to perfect this brilliant reissue? Mastering by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tape, for starters. Naturally Analog Productions turned to their own Quality Record Pressings for the finest 180-gram, dead-silent background pressing. Top it off with a Stoughton Printing gatefold tip-on jacket with beautiful full-size inner pictures and you've got an audiophile's dream. A can't miss for your collection!
