Duke Ellington Indigos on Limited Edition Gold CD from Impex Records 

Contains the Complete Stereo Album Plus 8 Bonus Tracks!

All Tracks Remastered from the Analog Master Tapes / Original Stereo Tracks by Kevin Gray / Monaural Bonus Tracks by Mark Wilder

Duke Ellington and his all-star ensemble lay back on this beautiful set of swinging, romantic ballads now available for the first time on limited edition 24K Gold CD from Impex Records. In addition to the complete 1958 stereo album (remastered from the analog master tapes by Kevin Gray) this edition also includes eight bonus tracks including alternate takes, a track from the monaural album and unreleased recordings. The monaural bonus tracks were remastered by Mark Wilder

Ellington was often imitated, never equaled. There's a clear "blue mood" at work in these sessions and Kevin Gray's mastering brings out a nocturnal mood, while keeping things warm and mellow. A deep and wide soundstage, mellifluous lows and crystalline highs make Indigos a perfect accompaniment to your late night listening. The sophisticated 9-song affair features definitive readings of such jazz standards as "Mood Indigo," "Autumn Leaves" and "Prelude To a Kiss" among others.

Deluxe hard cover book packaging with accompanying booklet which comes complete with archival photographs and notes.
