AllMusic Review by

The Encore Collection: The Strayhorn Touch is a budget-line collection that contains ten Billy Strayhorn-penned songs associated with Duke Ellington, all taken from the RCA/BMG vaults. Although there are no liner notes on the collection and it feels a little haphazard, it nevertheless makes for a great listen, especially for budget-minded casual fans.
