Majestic 1963 Album Reissued on Vinyl LP!

Originally released in 1963, this is a majestic piece of work. Considered one of Duke Ellington's best studio recordings of the sixties, this is also an essential mosaic piece within Duke's open wide Afro-centric vision. Performed by a top version of his famous big band, Afro Bossa sounds as a sophisticated, sensual blend of orchestral jazz arrangements and Black bossa flavored grooves.

Among the players, many of Duke's historical sidemen such as trumpeter Ray Nance, sax giants Paul Gonsalves and Johnny Hodges, drummer extraordinaire Sam Woodyard, and last but not least, Ellington's faithful sideman Billy Strayhorn.
