It has just become available and has music from January 9 1934 to July 17, 1936
As in Volume 5, a substantial part of the new Ellington In Order are ARC session available also in the Mosaic box The Complete 1932-1940 Brunswick/Columbia/Master Recordings. Only the first fourteen tracks – January 9 and 10, April 12 and 17 , May 8 and 9 1934 – are RCA-Victor session which can be found in The Ellington Centenial box as well.
As usual, Ian Bradley has put together a discography for the new issue of Ellington In Order and it is available at his blog https://ellingtonlive.blogspot.com/. Thank you to him for his impeccable job with every issue of Ellington In Order.
I will listen to Volume on Spotify but with Volume 6 is out, I will buy 4, 5 och 6 as separate digital files for my Roon.
There might be reason to get back to Ellington In Order in a later article.
