Description
This choice group of favorites by the world-famous jazz master and his orchestra features both ballads and uptempo numbers, including "In a Mellow Tone," "Ko-Ko," "Main Stem," "Caravan," "Bundle of Blues," "Stompy Jones," "Perdido," "What Am I Here For?" and more.

"This select compilation of 1930s and '40s Duke Ellington highlights his earlier dance band arrangements, as well as the work of talents like trumpeter Cootie Williams, heard here to best effect on 'Concerto for Cootie,' and saxophonist Ben Webster, who solos delightfully on 'Chelsea Bridge'."—All Music Guide

"Nobody, not Copland nor Berlin nor Bernstein nor Gershwin, comes close to matching Ellington's achievements, as composer and performer alike…. He ran his orchestra for 50 years … the rich, spellbinding instrument that seemed to sing his ideas back to him. Ellington was a vociferous pianist, but he would often drop out during a tune and listen to what his men were playing. It was an orchestra filled with distinctive voices, which Ellington deployed like choristers to their individual parts."—New Statesman
