Ellington is widely regarded as one of the most important composers in the history of music and many would agree that at the time of these recordings, he was at the beginning of his creative peak developing "The Ellington Effect". This set gathers together all the small group sessions led by Duke Ellington and his sidemen Rex Stewart, Barney Bigard, Cootie Williams and Johnny Hodges, during the years 1936-40.

Many of these songs -- now considered standards and jazz classics -- were heard first in these exceptional small group recordings. Juan Tizol's composition "Caravan" from a Barney Bigard session; Cootie Williams' "Echoes of Harlem;" vocal versions by the forgotten Mary McHugh on "Lost In Meditation" and "Prelude To A Kiss;" Rex Stewart's peerless cornet conceptions on "Rexatious" and "The Back Room Romp." And the Johnny Hodges masterpieces alone consist of "Blue Reverie," "Jeep's Blues," "The Jeep Is Jumpin'," a trio side with Duke and bassist Billy Taylor on "Finesse" and one of the most plaintive of these Hodges releases, "Wanderlust."

These songs will be played again and again through the ages. But these records stand alone.

The set also includes small group sessions led by Ellington during this period and a special bonus session recorded a few years earlier; Ellington's piano solos; and the duet sides with bassist Jimmie Blanton. There is also the Gotham Stompers session that comprises both the Ellington band and the Chick Webb band with Chick at the drums. As an extra special bonus, Ellington collector Steven Lasker included his own, rare treasure: a rehearsal disc of "Echoes of Harlem."

All known alternate takes are included here as well, some of which only came out on short-lived bootleg LPs in the 1960s and 1970s. There are 173 tracks in all with rare photographs and a complete, updated discography. We have worked on this one long and hard. It's truly a labor of love and a set that is not to be missed.
