Strayhorn by Others (1940-1967)


Notes

A collection of Billy Strayhorn's compositions performed by groups primarily other than Ellington (though Duke makes an appearance or two). There are some duplicate tunes, included chiefly because they're damn beautiful. There's a very rare incomplete take of Lush Life by Sinatra; he tried, but Johnny Hartman succeeded (later in the mix). [Note that 'A' Train is not included.]
