“Mood Ellington” by Duke Ellington and his Orchestra - album review

TJR says

The 49-year-old bandleader’s first album on Columbia, a moody 10" LP record issued in 1948. The album consisted of CBS sessions recorded in L.A. (14th August 1947) and NYC (pooled from 5 sessions 1st September to 30th December 1947). Opens up enjoyably enough off with “On A Turquoise Cloud”, interesting for, what sounds like, its wordless female vocal – though you never quite know with some of these exotic players. “Hy’a Sue” is the highlight – and that’s definitely the trumpet doing the talking! These two aside, there’s nothing here that moves or excites me…
