Recovering via Duke Ellington's "Afro-Eurasian Eclipse," which has an album cover of note:
For "The Afro-Eurasian Eclipse, " Ellington took his cue from a line in Marshall McLuhan's 1967 book, The Medium Is the Massage." "Mr. McLuhan says that the whole world is going Oriental and that no one will be able to maintain his or her identity, not even the Orientals," Ellington said adding that in his band's world travels, they had noticed this statement to be true.
