Duke Ellington's gorgeous 1958 release, already an audiophile stand out on Impex 33-rpm vinyl and 24k Gold CD, gets all the stops pulled out on our 65th Anniversary 45-rpm LPs! Exclusive new packaging and all-analog mastering provides experiential and immersive musical engagement that has The Absolute Sound's Wayne Garcia calling it, "A musical gem, sonic knockout. What a record!" 5/5 music - 5/5 sonics

We're also debuting a super-quiet, super-limited-edition solid Indigo purple vinyl edition! Made in collaboration with our friends at the Los Angeles Orange County Audio Society in honor of their 30th Anniversary, we carefully selected vinyl chips, with help from the vinyl gurus at RTI, to craft one of the quietest color LPs ever made — all without dramatically changing the tonal excellence of the original recording!

Strictly limited to 3,000 black and 1,000 purple HQ-180 pressings, Ellington Indigos on 45rpm HQ-180 will once again redefine definitive for this timeless jazz orchestra standard!
