This album is an oddity in Duke Ellington's huge discography. The pianist is heard as a guest soloist with the Ron Collier Orchestra in Canada performing six numbers composed and arranged by either Collier, Norman Symonds or Gordon Delamont. In addition to Ellington, the other soloists include flugelhornist Fred Stone, guitarist Ed Bickert and trombonist Butch Watanabe. None of the complex suitelike originals are particularly memorable, and the arrangements for the orchestra (two of the pieces utilize a string section) are reasonably colorful, but not too distinctive. Purely for Duke Ellington completists.
