1927 was a watershed year for Duke Ellington, not only did he land the prestigious Cotton Club gig (and the nationwide radio broadcast that went along with it), but it was also the year that Ellington signed a lucrative deal with agent Irving Mills. Mills introduced Ellington to an even wider audience, getting him recording sessions with Victor, Columbia and Brunswick. It was during this time Ellington created many works including Jubilee Stomp. Base on James P. Johnson’s ‘Victory Rag’, it was recorded by the band in early 1928. Ellington’s reputation grew and by 1929 he was starring in the groundbreaking all-African American RKO short film Black And Tan.
