About this item

Presented here both in its Stereo and Mono versions, this album was Duke Ellington and John Coltrane's only ever recorded encounter. For the occasion, Trane and Duke were accompanied by the bassist and drummer of their respective groups (who alternated from track to track), Aaron Bell and Sam Woodyard (from Duke's rhythm section), and Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones (from Trane's rhythm section). ALL MUSIC "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. Ellington always recognized talent, and Coltrane seemed quite happy to be recording with a fellow genius." Scott Yanow JOHN COLTRANE, tenor & soprano sax DUKE ELLINGTON, piano JIMMY GARRISON, bass, AARON BELL, bass, ELVIN JONES, drums SAM WOODYARD, drums. Englewood Studio, New Jersey, September 26, 1962. Original session recorded by Rudy Van Gelder & produced by Bob Thiele.
