Black, Brown and Beige is a 1958 jazz album by Duke Ellington and his orchestra, featuring Mahalia Jackson. The album is a recording of a revised version of Ellington's Black, Brown and Beige suite. After a disappointing critical response to its first performance in 1943, Ellington divided the three-part suite into six shorter sections, leaving in "Come Sunday" and "Work Song", and it is this version that is recorded here. All tracks by Duke Ellington.

When Duke Ellington set out to make a live album at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, he set his sights high, targeting new material that had been played by the band only infrequently in the months leading up to the concert. After the performance, Ellington and producer Irving Townsend decided to re-cut eight pieces under more ideal studio conditions and dub in applause to recreate the Newport event

Duke Ellington & His Orchestra.

Two years after his major success at the Newport Jazz Festival, Duke Ellington returned for another excellent if somewhat overlooked performance. The set is highlighted by an exciting trumpet feature ("El Gato"), "Jazz Festival Jazz" (which has cool and hot sections with impressions of both modern and New Orleans jazz), "Mr. Gentle and Mr. Cool," and a showcase for Clark Terry on flugelhorn ("Juniflip").

Duke and his orchestra arrived to play at the Newport Jazz Festival at a time when jazz festivals were a fairly new innovation. Ellington's band was the first and last group to play at the Newport Festival. The August 20, 1956 cover of Time featured Ellington. Columbia Records recorded the concert and an album soon followed. Newport 1958 is a 1958 album by Duke Ellington, recorded at the Newport Jazz Festival of that year and later in the Columbia recording studio. The original album, Newport 1958 and the French Columbia CD 468436 2 are mostly studio re-recordings of numbers performed at Newport. There is also dubbed in applause and crowd noise from Newport. During this time, Duke was frequently re-recording pieces that were performed live in the studio to be included on "live" albums. This was because he felt the live performances were not up to his standards.
