NTSC Region 0. Organist Wild Bill Davis joined the Duke Ellington orchestra during it's European tour for the last few months of 1969 and the first few months of 1970. This wonderful DVD contains one of the few filmed testimonies of this unusual collaboration, featured on the last two tracks of the concert: 'April in Paris', in which the band plays the famous arrangement Davis wrote for the Count Basie orchestra, and the perennial standard 'Satin Doll'. Johnny Hodges shines on 'Black Butterfly' and 'Things Ain't What They Used to Be' (he was to die just a few months later). As a bonus, this DVD offers an Amsterdam concert from Ellington's 1958 European tour. During his later years, the Duke was a bit tired of playing his old hits all of the time, preferring to perform newer and more ambitious pieces. However, to please the audiences, he used to "remember" his most famous tunes, arranging them into medleys. Here we have two such wonderful medleys; the first displays three very old hits from the twenties, while the second quotes eleven different songs! 15 tracks. Lonehill Jazz. 2006.
