Today I want to post about a historical duo recording of Duke Ellington and Jimmy Blanton.

Jimmy Blanton had developed a new bass technique of playing lines that sounded more like a horn.

He played the greatest performance with Duke Ellington at duo recording.

Also he showed his musical identity and superb skill to the full.

They had recorded only six tunes at duo in RCA and Colombia Records.

RCA Victor Records
“Mr.J.B.Blues”,”Body And Soul”,”Pitter Panther Patter”,”Sophisticated Lady”.

CBS Colombia Records
“Plucked Again”,”Blues”.

Recently I found their historical recordings in “Internet Archive”.
