Confusingly there are two Ellington albums called Live At The Blue Note, one from 1952 and the other from 1959 Live At The Blue Note.
The 1952 album compiles two radio broadcasts from 1952.
The original vinyl album release was on Aircheck with a CD released by Musidisk. It’s now available as an import on Tokuma.
