The Treasury Shows Vol. 19

$30,00

In April 1945, to promote the sale of war bonds, the Treasury Department contracted Duke Ellington to do a series of 55 min public broadcasts. This double CD contains broadcast No. 36 and 37 complete with radio speaks and encouragements to buy bonds + bonus material and extensive liner notes.

CD 1 contains a radio broadcast from Darthmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, May 4, 1946, plus bonus tracks from  The Hurricane Club in New York, September 3, 1943.

CD 2 features two radio programs from Radio City in New York, May 18 and May 25, 1946. The last tracks are again from The Hurricane Club but from September 1, 1943.

“Volume 19 offers the listener a Duke Ellington Orchestra that was zealously maintaining its confidence and energy…The remarkable output is swinging, bluesy, danceable and emotive.” writes William McFadden, who is also the author of the extensive liner notes.
