Thelonious Monk had great influence on Coltrane's sound a few years before, but the same has been said of this relatively brief association with Ellington. It is more than possible, for Duke's catalytic influence is unique in jazz. The one certainty is that there is great music here which will pleasantly surprise both Coltrane and Ellington fans. Audiophile remaster by Kevin Gray sounds perfect!

One of our favorite Jazz albums of all time, Coltrane's sound is smoother and more eloquent with "The Duke", forming a unique combination that cannot be heard on any other recording. A true masterpiece resulting from the combined genius of two of the All Time Greats.

In an article by Gene Lees in the monthly magazine, Jazz, there is an intimation that Coltrane's playing may have "undergone another spurt of rapid evolution" as a result of this relatively brief association with Ellington. It is more than possible, for Duke's catalytic influence is unique in jazz. The one certainty is that there is warm, exciting music here which will pleasantly surprise Coltrane and Ellington fans both.


For this classic encounter, Duke Ellington "sat in" with the John Coltrane Quartet for a set dominated by Ellington's songs; some performances have his usual sidemen (bassist Aaron Bell and drummer Sam Woodyard) replacing Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones in the group. Although it would have been preferable to hear Coltrane play in the Duke Ellington orchestra instead of the other way around, the results are quite rewarding. Their version of "In a Sentimental Mood" is a high point, and such numbers as "Take the Coltrane," "Big Nick," and "My Little Brown Book" are quite memorable. Ellington always recognized talent, and Coltrane seemed quite happy to be recording with a fellow genius.
