Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo" is a splendid example of what his collaborator Billy Strayohorn dubbed the "Ellington Effect," a sonic texture achieved through imaginative orchestration and unique to Ellington. Duke began with basic elements and tropes of jazz, then proceeded to filter those materials through his own indiosyncratic sense of rhythm and texture to fashion a sound that seems at once familiar yet exotic. Recorded on 11/5/2017. (#33384)
