Recorded in December of 1951 and 1952, Ellington Uptown joins stunning, extended works of recent vintage ("A Tone Parallel to Harlem," "The Liberian Suite," "The Controversial Suite") with fresh looks at such bona fide classics by Ellington and alter ego Billy Strayhorn, as well as "Perdido," co-written by longtime star valve trombone soloist Juan Tizol.
