• An historic encounter between two jazz generations. When this was recorded for the Impulse label in 1962 Ellington was already a consecrated figure in the jazz world while Coltrane was one of the promising new voices in modern jazz. This is their only recorded collaboration – to complete the line-up they employed their own rhythm sections, who alternated from track to track.

• Recorded a month earlier, the encounter with Coleman Hawkins was an altogether more light-hearted affair, with the two old masters enjoying a friendly and entertaining joust
