In August, we reviewed Storyville’s new CD with Ellington’s concert in Uppsala Nov. 9, 1971 and gave some further information about the concert. The article is available here.
There were two concerts on Nov. 9 – one at 19:30 and the other at 22:00. Storyville’s CD has the second one but also the first one was recorded.
It was done by someone in the audience using a portable recorder so the sound is rather low-fi but it is still quite enjoyable. The music is identical to the one in the second concert except for Hello Dolly, One More Time For The People and Lotus Blossom, which ended the second concert.
So the first concert was kicked off with C Jam Blues.
The full concert is available to DESS members in the Goodies Room.
