Watch jazz legend Duke Ellington’s sensational 1973 gig in Brussels’ Marni Theatre.

One of the greatest jazz composers of the Harlem Renaissance, and still considered to be one of the most influential jazz musicians of all time, no one did jazz quite like The Duke. Known for combining jazz standards with his own compositions like C Jam Blues, Caravan, and Mood Indigo, no two Duke Ellington concerts were the same. Over the course of his lifetime, he played over 20,000 concerts across the world.

In this concert from his great European tour Duke gives a big band concert to be remembered in Brussel’s Marni Theatre. Featuring star soloists Money Johnson on trumpet, Paul Gonsalves on saxophone, and Joe Benjamin on bass, and even a surprise appearance from singer Anita Moore, this recording is another gem in the Duke’s discography and a must-have for fans.
