Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The eighth of ten CDs in this valuable series of previously unknown Duke Ellington recordings is mostly taken from the 1965-67 period with one selection from 1957 and features particularly strong moments from trumpeter Cat Anderson, altoist Johnny Hodges and tenorman Paul Gonsalves on many little-played Ellington compositions along with versions of "Cottontail" and "Moon Mist". Drummer Louie Bellson guests on a few selections. All ten volumes in this series are recommended.
