Principally known for his big band compositions and performances, Duke Ellington was also a master of small group jazz, either written and directed by himself or played with the bands of his sidemen Rex Stewart, Johnny Hodges and Barney Bigard. To celebrate this side of his work, the Buck Clayton Legacy Band, led by BBC Jazz Record Requests host Alyn Shipton, directed by star German saxophonist Matthias Seuffert and featuring pianist Martin Litton, revisits the small band repertoire.
