AllMusic Review by

A typically excellent club appearance by Duke Ellington's orchestra near the end of 1958, it exists on CD because CBS happened to broadcast this date. Nearly all of the selections were composed by Ellington and his associates. Johnny Hodges stars throughout while trumpeter Clark Terry is tops among the supporting players. Not essential but well worth owning.
