Philips Ellingtonia Series by Paul Huf

Another great series Paul Huf made for Philips was a series of 5 E.P.’s with Ellingtonia by Duke Ellington & His Orchestra. A simple idea, but made in a great studio setting with nice young ladies and five different phonographs, each specific for the era. One photograph remains unused.
