Masterpieces by Ellington is the first LP album by American pianist, composer, and bandleader Duke Ellington, recorded for the Columbia label in 1950.
Amazingly, it took Columbia Records until the very end of 1950, two years into the LP era and the transition from disc to magnetic tape recording, to get Duke Ellington and His Orchestra into the studio to cut a long-playing record
So by 1950, Duke Ellington decided to revisit some of his old standards. This record marked the beginning of Duke Ellington’s return to the forefront of the jazz culture, despite the loss of several key band members, such as Johnny Hodges and Sonny Greer, shortly after the recording. Yet upon first listen, it’s obvious that this is not the Duke Ellington of earlier times. This is the LP that the Duke recorded, so he no longer had to play three-minute tracks. Because of this we get the long, elegant songs that were part of the band’s live show
