Here's a musical salute to the most celebrated American jazz composer of the twentieth century, the Duke! Arranger Jeff Hest has accurately transcribed and assembled three of Ellington's best-known songs: "Caravan," "In My Solitude," and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore." These Hest collections have been extremely successful for jazz ensembles because of their ability to teach big band jazz classics and their tremendous audience appeal. This is authentic Ellington---just as his own band performed it. The best of the best!
