The music of The Duke's D.J. Special is a top-flight display of the creative standards which have been characteristic of Ellington bands over the years. The patterns are varied and fascinating, and the band exhibits an interpretive range that is matchless in the realm of pure jazz. Further commentary on their respective or combined talents is needless, since one has only to hear the disc to become increasingly aware of what is meant by the phrase "A Swinging Band."
