Duke Ellington: The Nutcracker Suite
In 1960, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn arranged their own virtuosic adaptation of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker Suite" for the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Featuring nine cleverly arranged movements (boasting equally smart titles like "Toot Toot Tootie Toot" and "Sugar Rum Cherry"), it’s the quintessential Ellington blend of wit and sophistication. It's amazing how swinging and sexy the Nutcracker Suite can sound!
