By 1962, Ellington was well into his third-stream phase, adding more and more influences from classical, European art, and various indigenous musics to his work, while simultaneously incorporating elements of nearly every jazz, blues, and gospel form which had come before. It's no wonder that by this time, Ellington preferred the term "black classical music" to "jazz." Even Ellington standards like "Take the A Train" and "Black and Tan Fantasy" are rearranged here to reveal previously unexplored facets. The orchestra, which by this point featured players who had been with Ellington for over two decades, plays as if controlled by one mind.
