• After a few months’ closure the Cotton Club moved from Harlem to Broadway and reopened in 1936. The Duke Ellington band renewed its long association with the club and returned for a residency.

• These recordings of broadcasts from the club in 1938 include numbers from the revue specially written by Ellington and Henry Nemo and among some well-known tunes there are others which were never recorded in a studio. The final three tracks were recorded during a tour of Sweden in a Stockholm concert hall on the Duke’ s birthday.

• Double CD with detailed sleevenotes.
Reviews For At the Cotton Club (2CD)
Jazzwise - Stuart Nicholson
The wonder of it all is how completely he reinvented himself, leaving these tracks as testimony to how far musically he moved to achieve the undisputed heights achieved by the 1940-41 band. *****
Jazz Journal - Hugh Rainey
there's much to enjoy in this interesting compilation of rare live performances.
