Ellington Still in His Prime, 1962
J. Christmas | New Brunswick, NJ | 08/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had never heard of this label or this title before, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of this material was originally issued under other album titles. However, the selections are almost all excellent, and the mastering job is superb. Particularly incredible is the slow, lilting performance of "Flirtbird," an under-recognized masterpiece from Anatomy of a Murder. The selections are a good mix of popular and little known gems. A very happy purchase."
More rare studio sessions from Ellington!

"Many of the recordings Ellington made in the last 20 years of his career were recorded in major studios, but were done so at Ellington's expense, so he could retain ownership. Most were not released during Duke's lifetime, and have remained unavailable for years.

The tracks on this disc come from some of those recording sessions. These took place in May & July, 1962 at Bell Sound Studios. They contain some tracks not recorded by Ellington anywhere else, and some are re-recordings of his very early hits. And every track is in stereo! It's pure Ellington with the Duke himself on piano, and the rest of his orchestra behind him.

All the tracks were remastered in 24-bit, so the sound is crystal clear. The solos are fantastic, and again...they're all in stereo! There's nowhere else these tracks are available, so if you want them, this is the place."
