AllMusic Review by

A long out-of-print two-LP box set from Folkways documents the Duke Ellington Orchestra during three concerts in Oregon and Washington during their supposed "off period" in 1952. With four fine trumpet soloists and tenor-saxophonist Paul Gonsalves showing increasing indivuality, this hard-to-find set is worth searching for.
