The Duke Ellington orchestra is captured here at its mature best in this mid-1960s collection of artfully rearranged hits of the day. Ellington's arrangements blend populist sensibilities with artistic integrity, energizing standards like "Danke Schoen" and "Hello, Dolly" (which had been a hit for Louis Armstrong in 1964) with fresh musical ideas. A nicely balanced blend of uptempo swing and sophisticated after-hours blues, ELLINGTON '65 demonstrates seasoned players like Russell Procope, Johnny Hodges, and Laurence Brown at the top of their game.
