Description

This legendary 1961 date has a friendly after-hours feel, with the Ellington crew in the right channel and the Basie band in the left. They both deliver the type of no-nonsense straight-ahead jazz that characterized the best of the big-band sound. The sparring here between soloists of both bands is a pure delight, especially the gentle conversations between the two leaders-pianists, who finish each other's thoughts as if all four hands were attached to one unified torso. Highlights include two engaging new Duke compositions, the blistering opener "Battle Royal" and the impulsive "Wild Man" and the closing Basie chestnut "Jumpin' at the Woodside."
