Editor's info:
The complete original album Such Sweet Thunder, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's musical vision of the works of William Shakespeare.
As a bonus we offer three extra tracks from the same sessions that were not included on the original LP, as well as two other complete Ellington suites: The Harlem Suite & The Controversial Suite.
For an African American jazz musician to compose a suite based on Shakespearian themes during the 1950s was certainly not an every day occasion. In fact, it would have been an ambitious project even for a classical composer. But as Irving Townsend explained in the original liner notes that follow, when the composer in question is the one-and-only Duke Ellington, no one is surprised at all. The result of many sessions, the current edition presents the complete original Such Sweet Thunder album (tracks 1-12) plus three tunes from the same sessions that were originally intended to form part of the suite but were later discarded ("Suburban Beauty", "A Flat Minor" and "Café Au Lait"). As a bonus, this release also includes two of Ellington's previous suites: The Harlem Suite, also known as A Tone Parallel to Harlem, and The Controversial Suite, a kind of humorous work written as a friendly critique of some of the different musical styles in jazz.
