TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 12 February 2012
This is a cracking bargain: 40 Ellington numbers spanning 30 years of composition & performance from 1928-58, over 2 cds. Overall the digital remastering works well, though the limitations of the earlier pieces are obviously heard, but the energy and invention throughout dispels any reservations. Almost all the classics are here, and you can enjoy the electricity of them on the Amazon sampler.

Although the majority of the tracks come in around the 3 minute mark, we're also treated to three substantial tracks around the 8 minute mark, which really allows the piece to spread its wings, and for us to marvel at both composition and performance. Lovely, joyful jazz throughout, deceptively effortless and melodically memorable. At some mouth-wateringly bargain prices on the Amazon site, this should be snapped up without delay.

Replacing all my old, worn-out vinyl and this CD more than covers one of my favourite Ellington LPs.
