The Last Time I Saw Paris...

To be released on 19 November, 2013 - a little after the fortieth anniversary of the concert, Duke Ellington: last Trip To Paris is the first time this recording has been made available.

Squatty Roo's previous recent release - a CD version of Opens the Cave -  was edited and over-compressed but at least this music will be 'new'.
