    • Duke Ellington
      Sacred Concert

      From 1966 to 1974, Duke Ellington and his Big Band Orchestra toured the United States and Europe to great acclaim with his remarkable Three Sacred Concerts. This arrangement draws together the best pieces of all three concerts into a single work, recreating what Ellington called "the most important thing I have ever done".
