Taken from a concert in Stockholm, Sweden, this well-recorded CD mostly features trumpeters Cootie Williams and Cat Anderson, tenor-saxophonist Paul Gonsalves and altoist Johnny Hodges as the main soloists in a set with Duke Ellington's orchestra. "The Opener," "Blow by Blow" and "The Prowling Cat" have rarely been recorded and even the more familiar pieces are given new life, highlighted by a definitive rendition of "Harlem."
the great orchestra at its best
its simple, duke and his orchestra are classic jazz legends and this collection is remastered beautifully. if you love the duke you will love the almost 14 minute recording of harlem. its awesome!
