Review

Review Text During the period covered by this CD, Duke Ellington added trombonist Lawrence Brown and singer Ivie Anderson to his group. Other than Frank Marvin on the opening "Is That Religion," the brief era of so-so outside vocalists came to an end. Bing Crosby's appearance on "St. Louis Blues" is on a much higher level. Other highlights of this very good set including the second (and superior) version of Ellington's extended piece "Creole Rhapsody," "It's Glory," "The Mystery Song," the original version of "It Don't Mean a Thing," two three-song medleys of Duke's hits and a classic rearrangement of "Bugle Call Rag." ~ Scott Yanow
