Django & Duke at The Aquarium NYC – October 1946



Gottlieb’s photo of Duke & Django by the piano at the Aquarium, late October 1946.
Reinhardt was to become part of Ellington‘s “Concert Troupe” at the end of the month. Stratemann says Reinhardt arrived in New York by Plane on 3Oth October and was fated with a welcoming Party thrown by Ellington and the Morris Agency. Since the Aquarium Gig ended that day, and Ellington played Atlantic City on 31st October, these photos must have been taken on the eve of the 30th October, 1946.
(The Aquarium Restaurant was situated in Broadway Manhattan on 701, 7th Avenue & 47th Street New York)
