Ellington Indigos is a 1958 jazz album by Duke Ellington. Indigos features performances of jazz standards such as "Mood Indigo", "Autumn Leaves", "Prelude To a Kiss" and more!

The idea here was to produce an album dedicated to those who enjoyed dancing and listening to Duke Ellington and his Orchestra, so while most of Ellington's Columbia albums like Piano in the Background were thematic collections of songs for the LP era, this one attempts both musically and sonically to recreate the slow ballroom dancing ambience of a non-recital date where elegance of line takes precedent over jazzy syncopation and extended solos. It's positively dreamy...Close your eyes and you will imagine yourself in a "make believe ballroom" - an empty one - materializing out of the mist to bring you the sound and sensation of an era long past...The recording is superb in every way: texturally, harmonically and especially spatially.
