The Far East Suite: Special Mix

The Far East Suite: Special Mix by Duke Ellington
Released: Dec 1966
Label: RCA Bluebird
A tour of the East (both Middle and Far) inspired the Duke and Billy Strayhorn to record this album in 1966. Without ever veering into stylistic mimicry, the album conveys an outsider's impressions of distant lands. That the album still glows with mystery and pulsates with rhythm is a testament to Ellington's genius.
