AllMusic Review by

One of the odder Duke Ellington collections, only three of the 13 numbers were written by Ellington or Strayhorn (including a remake of "Paris Blues" and "Guitar Amour") and the music (some of it associated with Paris) sticks pretty much to melodic ballads like "I Wish You Love" and "Comme Ci, Comme Ca." Pretty music but far from essential.
