The first appearance of the Duke Ellington Orchestra in New York's Carnegie Hall on Jan. 23, 1943, was re-created Monday night as the first of three "Landmark Jazz Concerts at Carnegie Hall" to be staged this week. The program included Ellington's 50-minute "Black, Brown and Beige," subtitled "A Tone Parallel to the History of the Negro in America." It was played by an 18-piece all-star jazz orchestra conducted by Maurice Peress.
