While mowing the lawn (not exactly ideal listening conditions, I know):



It'd been a while since I'd listened to this. Boy, it's good.

Then started:

First listen, love it.  I definitely need to explore more Ellington... I'm still relatively new to jazz and getting my bearings, been listening off and on for 3-4 years.  Started with Bill Evans, then Miles and branched out from there....


The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted.

-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

I am no jazz expert by a long shot but I do listen to Ellington occasionally. Such Sweet Thunder is a really good album. I think that you would like New Orleans Suite, as posted above [if you do not mind a recommendation].
