“Ellington at Newport” is a 1956 jazz live album by Duke Ellington and his band, recording their historic 1956 concert at the Newport Jazz Festival.
In 1996, a tape was discovered in the annals of the Voice of America radio broadcasts which changed everything. It turned out that the 1956 album which was originally released by Columbia had been fabricated with studio performances mixed with some live recordings and artificial applause. A 1999 CD release of this concert restored the original live performances.
