DESCRIPTION

This album collects Ellington's original recordings (between 1927 - 1940) beautifully showcased in the 2014 Best Musical Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical sensation After Midnight, all in one place; including popular favourites like "It Don't Mean a Thing", "Stormy Weather" and "Cotton Club Stomp".

After Midnight takes the sexy, smoky glamour of the original Jazz Age and catapults it into a whole new era of heart-pounding, mind-blowing entertainment for modern Broadway audiences. Refracted through a contemporary lens, After Midnight celebrates Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club using his original arrangements and performed by a world-class big band of 17 musicians hand-picked by living jazz legend, Wynton Marsalis. The timeless tunes set against a narrative of Langston Hughes poetry provide an authentic backdrop for an array of cutting-edge performances by 25 sensational vocalists and dancers, including special guest stars, whose interpretations shatter everything you think you know about music, nightlife and Broadway.
