Editorial Reviews

For the first time ever splendid studio recordings of Duke s Ellington s My People as it was staged in Chicago, August 1963, with over 40% more music than the original LP issue and CD reissues!

The year 1963 was the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, as issued by Abraham Lincoln in the second year of the Civil War. To celebrate the centennial, an exhibition was staged in Chicago from August 16 September 2, 1963. Duke Ellington was invited to make a contribution, and the resulting show My People was conceived, written & staged entirely by Duke. A recording of My People was made in August 1963, supervised by Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. This CD contains for the first time ever the complete show!

On[...] it says that "the stage show presented in Chicago as part of the Century of Negro Progress Exposition in 1963." So, I find it hard to believe that it was released in 1960 :) I like this album, but in full disclosure, the "Irving Bunton Singers" which sing on the album was my put together by my father. He got to meet Ellington, but I did not. I may be biased for this album, but how can you go wrong with Ellington? Two thumbs up.

This Storyville issue of Duke Ellington's show My People does have quite a few more songs from the show than appeared on previously issued CD's. It is a great documentation of how the actual show sounded. However, the notes in the accompanying booklet are poorly written and tainted by numerous inaccuracies. (I know because I was in the band that played the show's premier performance in Chicago.) The CD has some great music and is a valuable piece of musical/theatrical history.

Got this for my husband and he loves it. He is a jazz and big band lover, so this was perfect.
