Far East Suite is an album by Duke Ellington that won the Grammy Award in 1968 for Best Instrumental Jazz Performance – Large Group or Soloist with Large Group. Ellington and Billy Strayhorn wrote the compositions. The album was reissued in 1995 with four previously unreleased alternate takes. In 2003, Bluebird Records issued the album on CD with additional bonus takes. Strayhorn died in May 1967, making Far East Suite one of the last albums recorded during his life to feature his compositions.

But it is the writing of Ellington and Strayhorn in their late prime that makes this one of his more memorable recordings.

Ken Rattenbury’s book on Duke Ellington contains two parts, the second of which is entitled The Music of the Mature Period, 1939 to 1941. If these years represent Ellington’s mature period, we have to wonder where that leaves an album like Far East Suite, released in 1967. By this late stage of his career, Ellington was perhaps just as famous as an ambassador of the United States as he was for his role of jazz composer. It was on a trip through the Middle East in 1963 that inspired the bulk of this album.

I think this is an original "stereo" pressing from Germany from 1967 or '68. on the back cover at the bottom it says "Made in Germany by TELDEC". Teldec is not a modern company. according to Wikipedia "The name Teldec is the result of taking the first three letters of both labels: Telefunken and Decca. Records manufactured by Teldec mostly were released under the Telefunken or Decca label, but normally these records contained no hint that they were made by Teldec."
