Amazon.co.uk Review

Of all the huge number of Ellington recordings, very few feature his unique piano work at any length, and those that do are usually unpopulated with front-line horns. By contrast, the three tracks here that involve him (and those on the Back To Back album from the same session) show him interacting with Johnny Hodges and trumpeter Harry Edison in a unique sextet. Edison, Les Spann (guitar/flute), Al Hall (bass) and ex-Basie drummer Jo Jones were musicians he was unaccustomed to working with, and the inspirational sparks flew. A storming version of "Stompy Jones" (especially during the piano solo and closing ensemble), the lesser-known "Goin' Up" from the movie Cabin In The Sky, plus Fats Waller's "Squeeze Me" are performances to treasure. More conventional but not inferior are the remaining septet tracks led by Hodges with Billy Strayhorn on piano, Ben Webster, Lawrence Brown and Roy Eldridge. All the tunes are played at various medium tempos, and everything is imbued with relaxed swing. Once more, the combination of a Ducal atmosphere with the non-Ellingtonians Eldridge and Jo Jones (again) makes for a highly successful performance. --Brian Priestley

I prefer "play the blues back to back" tunes but this is also a great album. Duke is a remarkable piano player and Johnny Hodges a wonderfull sax player. The rest of the personnel is highly competent making this music shine and fill your heart and mind with peace and joy.
Good remasterization: 24bit 96kHz from the original master tapes without excessive compression.

An excellent selection - particularly Stompy Jones which is outstanding. Only four tracks have Duke Ellington on the piano (Billy Strayhorn on the others) which is a bit misleading. What pulls down the whole CD is that it was recorded at low volume. Playing in a CD stack the volume has to be put up by a good 25%.

Cool jazz from the masters. Different from Back to Back in content but it sits side by side in my favourite jazz albums.
