AllMusic Review by

After meeting Duke Ellington in 1950 and working with him for the first time in 1962 on a production of A Drum Is a Woman, bandleader Claude Bolling has consistently paid homage to Ellington. His allegiance continues with Tribute to Duke Ellington, a double-CD set that includes Bolling's live recordings of "Black, Brown & Beige" and "A Drum Is a Woman," among other tracks, spanning Ellington's career. Bolling's reputation as a stylish, thoughtful bandleader is reinforced with this classy, heartfelt tribute.
