Only 2500 Numbered Limited Edition Copies Worldwide

Although the slow blues title track was cut in 1958 with a 15-piece orchestra, the majority of the material found herein was recorded the following year with slightly smaller configurations. Melding the feel of a formal studio date with a loose late-night jam session, the light and nuanced Blues In Orbit finds the Duke trading licks with the likes of Ray Nance, Clark Terry and Johnny Hodges among others, on an 11-song set that includes a few numbers by Billy Strayhorn, established classics from the Ellington songbook as well as more recent compositions and a few rarities for good measure.
