Actually, this is a very nice, subtle and swinging album and, in any other book, it would merrit 5 stars, but with 4 stars I just wanted to point to the fact that more-or-less same band produced Afro-Bossa and Concert in the Virgin Islands, to name but a few of the masterpieces from the Ellington repertoire (actually, I believe these two are from the very same era)...

So, if you like Mary Poppins, orchestral swing (and similar areas of music), you should buy it.
But, if you're a primarily an Ellington fan, beware, this is not the very best...
BTW, my edition (fromOriginal Album Series ) has the original cover art, with backside containing the name of the soloist and the complete orchestral line-up,
which is very nice and commendable...
The solos are great, although Cootie Williams has sounded better elsewhere (IMHO)...
