New Orleans Suite

New Orleans Suite Posted by Picasa

One of my favorite Duke Ellington albums is 1970’s "New Orleans Suite." It features the last recordings of Johnny Hodges. The first track, the appropriately titled "Blues for New Orleans" features him for the last time with the band.

New Orleans is (present tense) one of the great cities of the world. They’ll eventually come back with your help. If you can spare anything, think about

The title of the fourth track says it all - "Thanks For The Beautiful Land On The Delta."
