On This Day In Music History

On this day in 1962, two Jazz greats went into Rudy Van Gelder's Hackensack studio to record their album, simply titled "Duke Ellington & John Coltrane".

The 63-year-old Ellington was a legend, and Coltrane, at a mere 36, was becoming one of the biggest and brightest young stars in the Jazz world.

In the LP's notes, Coltrane wrote that he was honored to have the opportunity to work with Duke, musing that Ellington "has set standards I haven’t caught up with yet."

Here's a video clip of the two performing "In A Sentimental Mood".
