From Elmore magazine:
Revolutionary jazz composer Duke Ellington’s Conny Plank Session will finally see the light of day this July. For those unfamiliar with German sound engineer and producer Conny Plank, he rose to prominence for his work with Kraftwerk and Cluster. Stories have been told of this collaboration for many years, and we will finally have a chance to hear it this summer thanks to Grönland Records.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an edition of Brian Priestley's radio series, That's Jazz, broadcast weekly on Radio Kerry. Brian paid tribute to Clark Terry with a selection of recordings, including sides with Ellington.
I've decided to post Brian's radio series here weekly now. It covers, of course, more than Duke Ellington's music. This particular edition, for example, features a tribute to Billie Holiday the centenary of whose birth we celebrate this month.
