Music Monday: “My Little Brown Book” by Duke Ellington and John Coltrane

Here is another tune from the album Duke Ellington & John Coltrane, easily one of my top 10 favorite albums of all time. It was recorded September 26, 1962 and released in 1963.

  1. “In a Sentimental Mood” – 4:14
    (Duke Ellington)
  2. “Take The Coltrane” – 4:42
    (Billy Strayhorn)
  3. “Big Nick” – 4:30
    (John Coltrane)
  4. “Stevie” – 4:22
    (Duke Ellington)
  5. “My Little Brown Book” – 5:20
    (Billy Strayhorn)
  6. “Angelica” – 6:00
    (Duke Ellington)
  7. “The Feeling of Jazz” – 5:34
    (Bobby Troup/Duke Ellington/George T. Simon)
  • Duke Ellington – piano
  • John Coltrane – tenor saxophone, except on “Big Nick”, where he plays soprano saxophone
  • Jimmy Garrison – bass (tracks 2,3,6)
  • Aaron Bell – bass (tracks 1,4,5,7)
  • Elvin Jones – drums (tracks 1-3, 6)
  • Sam Woodyard – drums (tracks 4,5,7)

On a cool May morning, what could possibly be better than Ellington and Coltrane together?

Enjoy!
