Duke Ellington – La Plus Belle Africaine (1967)


Soul Call is a 1967 live album by Duke Ellington and his orchestra, recorded live at the Juan-les-Pins/Antibes Jazz Festival on the Côte d’Azur. Ella Fitzgerald appeared with Ellington and his band at the same festival, and a more complete version of Ellington’s appearance at the festival is documented on the 1998 album Ella and Duke at the Cote D’Azur.

La plus belle Africaine…wow!
