Spanning over five decades (1923-1974), the Duke Ellington orchestra was nursery, proving ground and finishing school for dozens of jazzmen. Three of the greatest, Harry Carney, Mitchell Booty Wood, and Paul Gonsalves, here front all-star groups on three albums produced by celebrated jazz critic Stanley Dance. They add up to an engaging example of the unpretentious kind of jazz these musicians liked to play when they were stretching out: adventurous but not avant-garde, traditional but not old-fashioned, free-ranging in its moods and full of that sound of surprise which is the lifeblood of jazzthe kind of timeless music, beyond fad and fashion, forever associated with the Great Ellingtonians.
