This CD was recorded in 1968-70, and includes some of the best work of Ellington's late period. The charts are unusual in being mostly composed ensemble work, with very few solos. What solos there are, are mainly from the Duke himself.
The bad points are that the playing time is very short (37 minutes) and there is no list of personnel. One track uses two bass players, but they are not named.
Definitely recommended for the excellent musical content. Good sound.
