Ad Lib On Nippon

Duke Ellington from Far East Suite (1972)

“Jazz is a good barometer of freedom. In its beginnings, the United States spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.” — Duke Ellington
