Program notes

The year 1973 saw a Belgian edition of the Jazz from Newport event, featuring one of the very last performances that the great Duke Ellington ever gave. He passed away less than a year later and one of jazz’ most important sparks of genius – the one that got the whole world swinging – faded out.
