AllMusic Review by

The midway point in this collector's series is reached in Volume Five which splits the program between performances by Duke Ellington's orchestras of 1943 and 1945. Although there were some personnel changes, there is a strong consistency to this series. Eight fine numbers (along with some alternate takes and false starts) makes this a worthy release.
