Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges. 


Duke Ellington Quintet - “Loveless Love”

The leading tone bids you good Monday morning from semi-sunny Hollywood with this laid-back, less often heard cut from 1959’s Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges Back to Back. It features Johnny Hodges (as), Harry Edison (t), Sam Jones (b), and Jo Jones (d).

Also, Les Spann on guitar.
