"The Ellington band live, at the end of the '30's - beginning of the '40's. The greatest band ever, in better sound than these tracks have ever been available in before. You KNOW you need it!!!! How can such a thing be critiqued? Pussy Willow, Old King Dooji, Gal From Joe's and Jazz Potpourri are all broader and more vivid than on the studio versions. The comparisons are fascinating - what happened outside of the 3 min. studio limit; what happened to a piece when it was played night after night. If you have Fargo you need this to compliment it!"
