Unquestionably, Duke Ellington is one of the most important figures to emerge in the history of jazz music. He is the author of many timeless compositions - "the standards". The St. Blaise's Bigband has made their selection and wrapped it into own imaginative and stirring view of this classic.

Sophisticated Lady, Satin Doll, Caravan or Solitude, as well as all other songs simply can not disappoint. The new coat intends to demonstrate their time-proved quality.
