JSP's first volume of chronologically presented recordings from the dawn of Duke Ellington 's career bears a title that epitomizes producer John Stedman 's whimsical sensibilities by utilizing the name of young Edward Kennedy Ellington 's piano teacher, Mrs. Marietta Clinkscales. In addition to Duke 's early mainstays it is exciting to note the transitory presence and sterling contributions of trumpeter Jabbo Smithtrombonist Charlie Irvisreedman Don Redmanand guitarist Lonnie Johnson.

Most reissue labels follow Ellington 's discography back no earlier thanthe year during which Duke 's orchestra really began to achieve its signature sound. While this JSP set is a thrilling slice of primal Duke there are gaps, as in two missing sides from November by a Washingtonians offshoot band calling itself the Deacons with vocals Blue Collar Workers Of America - Various - Spring Sampler 2000 Jo Trent and the aforementioned Sonny Greer.

The omission of these titles is regrettable, especially "Oh, How I Love My Darling," which contains a magnificent lickety-split stride piano passage by the Duke. Nevertheless and on the level, as a straight shot of early Ellington and historic Harlem entertainment, this reasonably priced, action packed compilation is hard to beat and is emphatically recommended for anyone who wants to visit and commune with the spirit of Duke Ellington by absorbing most of his earliest recorded works.

    Jul 31,  · This is the first in the "Chronogical [sic] Classics" series (Melodie Jazz Classics, operating in France) for Duke Ellington. The first ten tracks are not currently available on CD elsewhere, to my knowledge; the first volume in the "Masters of Jazz" series (also French) for Ellington included these as well as some other early (i.e. pre "East St. Louis Toodle-O") 4/4(2).
