AllMusic Review by

This is a CD reissue from the Flashback series originally released by Highpoint. The brief ten cuts here are form the late '50s edition of the Duke Ellington Orchestra. It includes not only the title track, but also the finest rendition -- in the studio -- of "Come Rain or Come Shine." Ellingtonia collectors will find nothing here they don't already have, and this is a less than suitable introduction for the novice despite the great music.
