Duke Ellington’s Greatest Hits. By: Duke Ellington (1967, Jazz). 1. Don’t Get Around Much Anymore. 2. Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me. 3. Black And Tan Fantasy.

Duke Ellington's Greatest Hits. Many famous Ellington sidemen appear here, including Johnny Hodges, Ray Nance, Rex Stewart, and Ben Webster. Ellington's legendary collaborator Billy Strayhorn appears on "Drawing Room Blues," a piano duet with the Duke. Of course, the most well-known and essential songs, like "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," "Mood Indigo," "Sophisticated Lady," and "Take the 'A' Train" are all included on this compilation.

This is the discography of Duke Ellington. Most of these recordings are listed by the year they were recorded rather than year released. Reissues are listed for most of the recordings released before the 1950s, as the original 78s are rare.

Calling the album in question here, Duke Ellngton’s Greatest Hits, might have been an attempt to make it more appealing and increase sales, but it is very misleading as this is not a collection of old original studio recordings, but is actually a live concert recorded some time in 1963, while the band was on tour in Europe. Columbia Legacy CK 65419. This compilation is more intriguing than the track listing might first appear due to the fact many of the versions are from less obvious 78rpm & LP sources (see below for more detailed information). 1) Satin Doll 31 Mar 1958 from DUKE ELLINGTON AT THE BAL MASQUE. 2) Don't Get Around Much Anymore (vocal Al Hibbler) 20 Nov 1947 from THE CHRONOLOGICAL DUKE ELLINGTON & HIS ORCHESTRA 1947-1948 (CLASSICS), 78rpm. This Greatest Hits album has the advantage that it's a re-issue of the original Columbia album from the late sixties, and one of a series that was produced to bring a number of big name artists to perhaps wider attention at a time when jazz wasn't as popular as it had been. Other titles include hits from Theolonius Monk, Count Basie and Miles Davis. But back to Ellington.
