Review

Review Text Cut a few years before the Ellington band's golden run during the early '40s, this 24-track collection from 1936-1937 finds the group in top form. As is usual with any of Classics' chronological discs, the fare runs the gamut. In this case, the mix takes in novelties ("Love Is Like a Cigarette"), reprised classics ("East St. Louis Toodle-Oo"), and contemporary gems ("In a Jam"). And as a highlight, there are also several sides cut by clarinetist Barney Bigard and a small band made up of other Ellington sidemen ("Caravan," "Stompy Jones"). A treat. ~ Stephen Cook
