A Portrait of Duke Ellington is an album featuring trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie and orchestra performing compositions associated with Duke Ellington, recorded in 1960 and released on the Verve label.

Dizzy Gillespie's complete 1960 album A Portrait of Duke Ellington (Verve MG-VS-68386), the trumpeter's heartfelt homage to the Duke. Consisting entirely of compositions by Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, it features Dizzy fronting an orchestra heavy with wind instruments including trombone, woodwinds, flute, tuba and French horns, plus a rhythm section featuring Hank Jones on piano, George Duvivier on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums. Perhaps only Miles' "Kind of Blue" promises to be around for the unforeseeable future-or at least until the public can no longer afford to purchase CDs or MP3 downloads. By common consensus the 4 essential, seminal, transformative artists in this music-those creative minds who clearly deserve the otherwise overused, cheapened word "genius"-are Armstrong, Ellington, Parker/Gillespie (take your pick), and Coltrane.
