AllMusic Review by

The Quintessence New York - Chicago - Hollywood: 1926-1941 captures a number of gems recorded by Duke Ellington between 1926 and 1941. These 36 tracks include such standards as "Creole Love Call," "Mood Indigo," "Take the 'A' Train," and "In a Mellotone." While the Frémeaux & Associés releases are recommended to casual fans, as a first purchase The Best of the Duke Ellington Centennial Edition on RCA would be easier to locate.
