This is one of many live recordings to emerge since Duke Ellington's death in 1974. A spirited rendition of "El Gato" features high-note specialist Cat Anderson battling the rest of the trumpet section, which includes Clark Terry, Shorty Baker, Ray Nance, and Nelson Williams, who evidently made his only appearance with Ellington on this date! "Take the 'A' Train" is heard in two versions: with Nance's campy vocal (his band nickname was appropriately "Floorshow") and as an uptempo cooker featuring Paul Gonsalves.

Even after Duke Ellington died, recordings by his band have continued to appear, to the delight of his fans. This recording from 1958 is one such: a double CD capturing an exciting concert with acceptable sound quality. Some listeners may complain that the programme includes several reruns of Duke’s greatest hits, but these remind us what a superb songwriter he was, and the royalties from such performances no doubt helped Ellington to keep his expensive ensemble alive. But the music is fine.
