Duke Ellington's Spacemen - The Cosmic Scene

This is the second of fairly easy to find Duke records but once again it reflects how much I loved the way the man could make a small band just swing like crazy.
Once again taken from my Columbia lp CL 1198.
This record has been reissued and I am sure is readily available so I won't list song titles here. But if you are like me nothing beats the feeling of knowing you are listening to the real deal.

I think I have taken Duke too much for granted all these years so it's great to have a listen to some of these classics. Thanks so much for sharing. As much as I know and love the guy, I still have a lot to learn.
