Duke Ellington’s concert at the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival lacked the excitement and adventure of his appearances in 1956 and 1958. Ellington and his orchestra played their usual program of standards and features with the 14-and-a-half-minute “Idiom ’59” being introduced (and then quickly forgotten). Fine music but nothing that historic or essential occured this time around.
