Blues In Orbit ‎(LP, Album, Mono). Blues In Orbit ‎(CD, Album, RE, RM). Columbia, Legacy.

Blues in Orbit lacks the intellectual cache of the suites and concept pieces that loomed large in Ellington's recordings of this period, but it's an album worth tracking down, if only to hear the band run through a lighter side of its sound - indeed, it captures the essence of a late-night recording date that was as much a. loose jam as a formal studio date, balancing the spontaneity of the former and the technical polish of the latter.

Album · 1960 · 19 Songs. Perhaps the most sonically alive and dynamic recording in the Ellington catalog, Blues in Orbit revisits a few chestnuts from the old repertoire and adds several appealing new compositions. The two tracks recorded in 1958 are both standouts: the title track features a call and response between the band and Ellington on piano, while Track 360 is a tense, dramatic audio reproduction of a train collision. The remainder of the tracks were recorded in December of 1959 and feature Ray Nance as the band’s only trumpeter.
