In addition to its reputation as a cultural and artistic phenomenon, the Duke Ellington orchestra was also one of the finest dance bands of the Swing era. Though the big band roster had been decimated throughout the 1950s, Ellington managed to keep his outfit intact by constant national and international touring. First released in 1962, after Ellington had signed to Frank Sinatra's Reprise label, this salute to the big band era features classics like "Woodchopper's Ball," "One O'Clock Jump," and "Tuxedo Junction," made famous by Ellington's contemporaries, including Stan Kenton, Count Basie, and Woody Herman. The set displays Ellington's orchestra in relaxed mood, demonstrating both its technical prowess and effortless swing.
