Duke's Place

Music by Duke Ellington, Lyrics by Bill Katts, Bob Thiele and Ruth Roberts

The piece typically features several improvised solos. The final solo continues in the upper register as the entire ensemble comes in and the music grows to a climax. The melody likely originated from the clarinetist Barney Bigard in 1941, but its origin is not perfectly clear.

    Release Date: 1942
