Ancestor Worship: Duke At The Whitney

Ancestor Worship: Duke At The Whitney

When I was in Rotterdam last month visiting Mark Ritsema I found in his collection an album of a Duke Ellington solo and trio concert at the Whitney Museum of Art in New York City on April 10, 1972 and I thought it’d be a great chaser after our string of Thelonious Monk programs.
