The ten tracks included here are simply compiled from the great Duke Ellington Orchestra with Jimmy Blanton and Ben Webster: if you look closely on the insert you will see Webster in the bottom left hand corner. While this disc is taken track for track from a Hindsight release of the same name in 1998, these recordings are from the late '30s and early '40s. All of the cuts are familiar, and these are devastatingly wonderful readings. There is better sound on other comps issued by RCA of the music from that time, but not for this price. ~ Thom Jurek
