This album is a collection of classic melodies from the repertoire of Ben Webster's famous employer of many years, Duke Ellington

The album is comprised of three live radio sessions with the Danish Radio Big Band in 1969 and 1971, plus live concert sessions with two different backing trios (Finland in 1967 and Denmark in 1969). Aside from one tune, all the performances with the Danish Radio Big Band are based on Ellington's original scores.

The quartet sessions are also great - one with Ben's boss from the early 1930's, Teddy Wilson, and the other with Kenny Drew. That Ben Webster was one of the undisputed jazz greats on the tenor saxophone - both in a big band and small group context - is amply illustrated on this fne album.
