Originally one of the best non-live records ever made. Ellington and his producer were so displeased with the sound quality taken from their concert that Ellington arranged to have his orchestra show up in studio and record the album and over dub the sound of the audience. Only years later with cd re-issue was a version of his actual playing on front of an audience released. Still a great set.
