Duke Ellington - Take It Easy-1928
In September 1923, Elmer Snowden started a group known as the Washington Black Sox Orchestra. The orchestra was created when Snowden got a contract to play at the Hollywood Club in New York. The name of the group was shortened to The Washingtonians. Due to financial disagreements, Snowden was voted out of his own group and Edward "Duke" Ellington was elected as the new leader. They played at the Manhattan for over a year until the club was shut down for repairs. When the club reopened as The Kentucky Club, the band name became Duke Ellington and the Kentucky Club Orchestra although they continued to record as the Washingtonians until 1929 in what they called their "Jungle" sound, so called because of the unique sound of Bubber Miley's "Plunger" trumpet.
Take It Easy was recorded in 1928 on the Cameo, Pathe Actuelle, Brunswick and Perfect labels. This recording is from the Brunswick cut made March 21, 1928 in New York.
