Although in his mid-60s, Duke Ellington proves on this program of mostly new music that he never declined nor lost his creativity. Four of the pieces comprise "The Virgin Islands Suite," and there are new versions of "Things Ain't What They Used to Be" and "Chelsea Bridge," and also a variety of miniature classics. In 1965 the Ellington orchestra had 11 very distinctive soloists; eight are heard from during this memorable set.
I was fortunate to attend the Duke Ellington concert presented in the pool terrace of the Virgin Isle Hotel in St. Thomas, Virgin Island on April 1965. This was a memorable date and the orchestra played like never before. The sound was at its best even when the concert was outdoors. This may not rise to the heights of "Afro-Bossa", Ellington's first Reprise album which I consider to be one of his best theme- or concept-albums ever, but that is mostly because of Ellington's use of some old material here (where Afro-Bossa is new material from start to finish). This should be an essential purchase for any Ellington aficionado, and for anyone interested in large jazz orchestras at their best.
