Description:
"The Ellington Centennial ... focused new attention on the maestro and inspired a welcome flurry of releases -- both reissues and newly recorded tributes. In the wake of this activity, one would be hard-pressed to conceive a fresh approach for another Ellington project. Yet this truly international ensemble of accomplished players has managed to do just that through its varied repertoire (covering four decades of Ellingtonia), imaginative arrangements and inventive solos." -- Ed Berger, Associate Director of the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers University.
