Format: Audio CD
Eight CD's of broadcasts, concerts, and location recordings made by the Ellington band in the 1940's might seem to be for specialists only. Not at all. We have here a superb portrait of the Duke during one of his most creative periods, well recorded and splendidly annoted by Dan Morganstern. The highlight must the location recording of a dance in Fargo, North Dakota in November 1940. This is how the greatest of all big bands sounded on a typical one night stand and is, arguably, the most significant of all 'live' jazz recordings as well as being splendid listening.

The broadcasts from earlier in 1940 are also very good but the later material shows clearly what a fine band Duke had later in the decade. This period has, in my opinion, been seriously undervalued by Ducal critics and this fine anthology should do much to redress the balance.

The remastering has, compared with previous issues of this material, greatly improved the sound quality and this boxed set is certainly one of the most important issues of Ellington material in recent years. An essential purchase.
