THE COMPLETE DUKE ELLINGTON SONGBOOK is a three-disc set containing all 38 songs recorded during the sessions for the original vinyl release of THE DUKE ELLINGTON SONGBOOK in 1956. Produced by the legendary Norman Granz, the sessions are simply remarkable, as they capture Fitzgerald at the height of her powers backed by the classic mid-'50s lineup of Ellington's orchestra, featuring Paul Gonsalves, Barney Kessel, and Ben Webster. Pianist extraordinaire Oscar Peterson even sits in. The songs are exquisite, of course. Duke Ellington and his musical partner Billy Strayhorn were possibly the finest songwriters in jazz history, and every track here is a classic. In particular, these renditions of "Prelude to a Kiss," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," and "Lush Life" may be the definitive versions. This set is essential for all Fitzgerald and Ellington fans.
