AllMusic Review by

These late-model versions of tried and tested Duke Ellington hits include updated arrangements of "The Mooche" and "In a Sentimental Mood," as well as a version of "Caravan" recorded during the band's early-1960s flirtation with Latin rhythms. There's a rare Ray Nance vocal on a loose "Take the 'A' Train," and the trumpeter is also heard on a nicely swinging "Just A-Sittin' and A-Rockin'." THE ELLINGTON LEGACY is a fine sampling of mature Ellingtonia, captured in both live and studio settings..
