La Maison du Duke (Duke's Place in Paris)

DEMS 11/1-25

See DEMS 10/3-14

Probably the most famous collector of unissued Duke Ellington recordings in France was Dr. Charles Clavié. La Maison du Duke has acquired his tape collection from which our French friends have released a CD: "Duke Ellington: the 1962 Museum of Modern Art Recital". This first CD has been given to the members of the association as a present. How future releases have to be distributed without having conflicts with the copyright is under discussion with official labels. They have also planned the release of CDs with recordings of "The Duke Orchestra" of unknown Duke material that will be transcribed from the recordings in the Clavié collection.
See for more information www.maisonduduke.com.

The recital at the Museum of Modern Art was given on 4Jan62. It started as usual with Duke as soloist playing:
 1. New York City Blues
 2. Blue Bells of Harlem
 3. The Clothed Woman
 4. Melancholia
 5. Janet
 6. Reflections in D
 7. There Was Nobody Looking
 8. New World a-Comin'
This was followed by the trio: Duke, Aaron Bell and Sam Woodyard, playing:
 9. Take the "A" Train
10. Lotus Blossom
11. Satin Doll
12. Single Petal of a Rose
