Blow by Blow
Paul Gonsalves w/The Duke Ellington Orchestra
Talent to turn things around
for the Duke
Starting his career of running with the Sabby Lewis Band, Paul Gonsalves would jam with Dizzy Gillespie and Count Basie before joining the Duke's orchestra in 1950.
This performance of “Blow by Blow” comes on the heels of his blockbuster performance at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival – widely believed to be a performance that turned things around for Duke Ellington. In Ellington's intro to this song, he makes a point of referencing the crowd's reaction to the Newport performance.
