Class Materials – 5/6/17 – Brent Fischer



There are at least four recordings of Ellington playing "The Clothed Woman". Below is the first one I heard and transcribed. I had it on a cassette compilation which is long gone. I'm not sure where it was recorded - I did find it on YouTube--I know it's the same one because the trumpet player cracks a note at the beginning of the B section. It is not the performance from the 1947 Carnegie Hall concert.
