On the Road with Duke Ellington (1967)

Interesting documentary a fellow musician told me about (Thanks, Tim!). Recorded the year I was born. Louis Armstrong makes an appearance and Duke admits to stage fright. So may performances and the man still gets the jitters. Like Louis said, it’s all about using that energy.

Some good insights into Duke, his process, and his thoughts about composing, playing, and much more. Worth a look.
