AllMusic Review by

This is a particularly enjoyable concert performance by the erratically documented 1955 Duke Ellington Orchestra. Both altoist Rick Henderson and bass trombonist John Sanders have rare features and the orchestra stretches out on "Take the 'A' Train," "Happy Go Lucky Local" and "Harlem." This is one of a countless number of valuable Duke Ellington performances available on record.
