The great Duke Ellington only rarely recorded in a trio format. This release compiles all of his trio recordings from 1953 to 1957 (Three tunes, in fact, are piano-bass duets on which the bass only accompanies Ellingtons piano).

As a bonus, there is an extended 1966 solo piano version of New World A-Comin and an extremely rare solo piano version of Mood Indigo.
