Duke Ellington was a genius, and these two compact discs show how his musical style was developing in the 1930s. Highlights include "Carnival in Caroline" and a swinging version of "Ol' Man River". While perhaps not as groundbreaking as some of Ellington's later work, he still brings his unique style and talents to the material.

Great music on this double cd is destroyed by volume.

It is too low.

And note: Sound quality of Wanderlust is worse than on French Classic label.

The Jeep Is Jumpin' is not complete. First bass touch missing on original Columbia cd!!!!

On French Classic label is whole version.

I'm waiting for better new edition of this perfect music.

This is the second of two Columbia sets featuring Duke Ellington and small groups (6-8 musicians) from the 1930s. This set spans 1938 to 1939. The recordings were originally released under the nominal leadership of key members of Ellington's big band including trumpeters Rex Stewart and Cootie Williams and saxophonist Johnny Hodges (who is more heavily featured on this second set). Most of the songs were penned by Ellington together with various members of the group, usually the nominal leaders of the sessions. All the music is wonderfully elegant swing music that will take you back in time.

In addition to the musicians mentioned above, Ellington also was joined by Barney Bigard on clarinet, Harry Carney on baritone sax, Otto Hardwick on alto saxophone, Lawrence Brown, Joe Nanton, Sandy Williams, and Juan Tizol on trombone (but only one at a time), Billy Taylor on bass, and Sonny Greer on drums. Featured singers included Jerry Kruger, Mary McHugh, Leon LaFell, Scat Powell, Jean Eldridge, and Louis Bacon.

There are many wonderful songs on this set including lovely ballads and upbeat stompers. My favorite songs are the ballads "I Let a Song Go Out of My Heart" and "Like a Ship in the Night". The one clunker is a strange, syncopated version of "Ol' Man River" from the musical "Showboat"; why Duke messed around with this classic ballad is a mystery to me.

You'll be impressed by the charm and inventiveness of this music as you enjoy one great song after another. It is unfortunate that these sets are no longer available from Columbia. Hopefully, you'll be able to find used copies.
