The Carnegie Hall Concerts: January 1943 is a live album by American pianist, composer and bandleader Duke Ellington recorded at Carnegie Hall, in New York City in 1943 and released on the Prestige label in 1977.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
This two-CD set captures one of the milestones in Duke Ellington’s long and extremely productive career, highlighted by his monumental suite “Black, Brown and Beige” in the only full-length version ever recorded by his orchestra; soon it was only performed as excerpts. In addition, Ellington’s all-star orchestra (including such stylists as trumpeters Rex Stewart, Ray Nance, and Shorty Baker; trombonists Tricky Sam Nanton and Lawrence Brown; and a saxophone section boasting Johnny Hodges, Ben Webster, and Harry Carney) excels on the shorter pieces, a mixture of older and recent compositions. Every serious jazz library should contain this set (https://goo.gl/8ve7RF).
