Any performance by the incomparable Duke Ellington Orchestra usually defies adequate description. With this album you can aurally travel back in time to the Nineteen Fifties when the orchestra was in its hey day, at that time Duke Ellington had already scored most of his major compositions creating a considerable legacy for all lovers of jazz and the big band sound and it is after years of refining his craft that the sounds on this album are presented. Here is none of the formal stiffness of the recording studio but the orchestra powerfully confronting a large enthusiastic audience. On this album the fruits of such an interplay are obvious. The album features some of Duke Ellington’s Finest Instrumentalists, among them Johnny Hodges, William ‘Cat’ Anderson, Harold ‘Shorty’ Baker, Clark Terry and Sam Woodyard and the selection of tracks should offer something to all connoisseurs of this wonderful form of music.
