"This is the real deal folks. The Ellington band Live in 1958 playing a Dance concert, apparently unaware that they are being recorded. You can hear all the banter between the musicians and Duke on stage as the concert progresses, and it shows that these guys were having a ball!!!
I play this more often that the famous Newport concert, which sounds stiff compared to this loose gig. And with the exception of the notable Goncalvez solo on Diminuendo in Blue, this is a much more enjoyable overall concert.
Just get it. 100% class entrainment."
