Info for The Symphonic Ellington

In 1963 Duke Ellington realized a longtime goal, to record some of his extended works using both a symphony orchestra and his regular big band. Included on this fine CD are the three movements of 'Night Creature,' the relatively brief 'Non-Violent Integration,' 'La Scala,' and an adaptation of Ellington's 'Harlem Air Shaft.' With most of his all-star soloists heard from in this program and a complete avoidance of trying to make his music sound so-called 'respectable' or self-consciously third stream, Ellington's arrangements keep the strings from weighing down the proceedings and the music is actually quite successful. (Scott Yanow)

'...THE SYMPHONIC ELLINGTON involves a now-fully-stabilized 1963 personnel plus, in [annotator Stanley] Dance's words, `some 500 of the best talents from the symphonic resources of Paris, Hamburg, Stockholm and Milan'...' (Down Beat 6/93)
