Watching the 9 1/2 minute Duke Ellington 1935 film "Symphony In Black", built around his composition "A Rhapsody of Negro Life".

Its actually really well made and inventively shot. And includes a young Billie Holiday in a bit I'd seen excerpted before.

Telarc really has a blind spot when it comes to covers.

Bought a few months ago, shelved after a cursory listen, but now I have been listening to it virtually nonstop for the past two or three weeks. Love it.

8) Just bought a load of Fats CDs (local secondhand music shop). Doesn't seem to be any comprehensive box sets of his stuff out there. Glad to see peeps still spinning him.

Where else can you hear a medley of Stravinsky and the Mahavishnu Orchestra?

In this day and age, the name of this 1973 single-disc release is confusing. I kept getting notifications like 'Your Giant Box will be delivered today', and I kept thinking, 'What did I order a giant box of?', thinking it must be something I pre-ordered months ago.
