    Notes

    At this 1946 edition of the Duke's historic 1940's concert series, the emphasis was on expansiveness, with selections from the previously-presented Black, Brown and Beige; a brand new "tonal group"; and a reshaping of one of his earliest longer works, the 1930's pairing of Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue.

    Recorded in concert at Carnegie Hall, New York City,
    on January 4, 1946

    Issued by arrangement with Mercer Records
    and Mercer Ellington.

    Reprocessed, from original source material,
    by Jerry Valburn and Jack Towers.

    Mastered, 1977, by David Turner
    (Fantasy Studios, Berkeley)

    Albums assembled by Orrin Keepnews.

    (NOTE: The total length of this concert has made it impossible to
    include in this two-record set every selection performed on this
    occasion. The omissions were necessarily arbitrarily decided on, and
    there was no simple system used. My tendency was to do without
    vocal and pop-song numbers and some very-frequently recorded
    Ellington standards, and to retain pieces rarely or never to be heard
    elsewhere - even if the performance was less than perfect.
    - Orrin Keepnews)
