“Concert in the Virgin Islands” by Duke Ellington and his band is not a live recording but instead consists of three separate studio sessions.
The first four pieces make up the “Virgin Islands Suite”, with two of them featuring Jimmy Hamilton‘s clarinet, with Billy Strayhorn‘s “Fiddler on the Diddle” obviously putting Ray Nance‘s violin playing in the spotlight.
