| Ella Fitzgerald does not appear in this special....the rest of the cast is correct
This is a great special totally honoring the Duke of Ellington.. It's totally a shame that can't restore this and put it out on DVD. Given the historical significance of this treasure. Paula Kelly (Night Court) does some pretty good dancing. Billy Eckstine, Sammy Davis Jr. Sarah Vaughan Paggy Lee and Aretha Franklin do outstanding vocals.... Roberta Flack too. (love her rendition of Lush Life) Ray Charles shines with the solo performance of "I Like The Sunrise" then jams on the duet with Aretha. Sarah Vaughan is in top form with her solo of Caravan.. Billy Eckstine with Sophisticated Lady.. all in all This really should be out on video, but sadly it's not ...just sitting there in the vaults at CBS. I guess its been so long the listing says Ella Fitzgerald is in it..however she is NOT. If you do see this gem..enjoy it is a part of musical history, as Duke passed away a year later..Plus Tony Bennett is not in this special either... they got that wrong too..
