Den 8 april 2016 publicerade vi en artikel om Ellingtons framträdande i Borlänge Folkets Park den 12 juni 1963. Artikeln illustrerades med fyra foton från tillfället tagna av Olle Lindholm.
Här är ytterligare fyra foton från Olle Lindholms kamera – den här gången med Johnny Hodges och saxsektionen i centrum.
