The Carnegie Hall Concerts (December 1944)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The Ellington orchestra was undergoing some personnel and personality changes during this era, none of it unexciting. This Carnegie Hall concert available on two CDs introduced Ellington's "Perfume Suite," and includes a half-hour series of selections from "Black, Brown and Beige," but also in the shorter pieces shows the impact of tenorman Al Sears and high-note wizard Cat Anderson on the band's sound, making it a more potentially boisterous and extroverted ensemble. Lots of great moments from this brilliant orchestra occured during this concert.
