The music for the 1959 film and sound track album Anatomy of a Murder presents a comprehensive account of important features of the later, i.e. post-Newport, oeuvre of the Duke Ellington Orchestra and its two composers. With its distinctive orchestration, imaginative formal design, use of thematic transformation as a means of musical growth, unity in the midst of compositional collaboration, advances in the handling of tonality, harmony, and dissonance, exploitation of the “suite” ideal as a compositional form, and adherence to the coloristic “Ellington Effect,” Anatomy's music affords a great comprehension of what Ellington, Strayhorn, and the orchestra were about in a richly productive later period for the band.
