Duke & Ella

no one from the dimers who dowloaded my Anita and Tete sets seem to have found their way over here to grab the third set I have from Antibes 1966, so here's a post dedicated to this one in the open, as opposed to the "easter egg", as which it had been disguised before...

I assume all or most of this is on the big 8CD box of Duke & Ella in Antibes - too much of a good thing for me - I love Duke and own the RCA set, the Capitol and Reprise Mosaics, the recent Storyville box, the Private Collection, the Carnegie Hall Concerts, and a whole bunch of single CD reissues, too, from Columbia, Bethlehem, Blue Note, Impulse etc. - but I'm not that big an Ella fan... and 1966 was past the Duke's prime, too...

Anyway, this short set, radio-sourced, is certainly nice to have! Links in the comments, all info included with the DL.

it's rather astonishing that these links are still good - I got no reactions or comments on these, as you can see, so thanks for caring!
