Format: Audio CD
Hot sessions, indeed...
It is a pitty these recordings are a bit erratic - some are marred by bad ballance between the Duke's vocalists (Jimmy Garrison and Ray Nance) and the band, Take the A-Train is not complete (they run out of the tape, Mood Indigo is but a sign-out performance...

But, you do get Ellington's big band at the top of the game, with sparkling instrumental solos all-around PLUS two spirited performances by "Festival all stars" - Buck Clayton (tp), Hank Jones (p) with some ellingtonians - Hamilton, Gonsalves, Jimmy Woode and Sam Woodyard,
PLUS Willie The Lion Smith's quartet playing three songs; the typical Smith's trio of the time (with Walter Page on the bass) is augmented by (again) Buck Clayton.

Ellington's band is:
Anderson, Terry, Cook, Nance (tp), Woodman, Jackson, Sanders (tb), Hodges, Procope, Hamilton, Gonsalves, Carney (reeds), Duke, J. Woode (b), Sam Woodyard (dm).......

In spite of the imperfections mentioned in the beginning, this is a great and historical CD;
IMHO the most complete and satisfying Ellington performance here is "The Newport Jazz festival suite" - "Festival Junction", "Blues to be There" and "Newport Up"...
Objectively speaking, it should probably get 4 stars, but I'm giving it 5 from the heart.
