This is one of the two best Ellington live concert recordings I have heard. The Great Paris Concert not bad - Tivoli Gardens hard to appreciate with the technical problems. This and the 1956 Ellington at Newport are the places to go to hear Ellington in concert. It was recorded at Manchester's Free Trade Hall. I was lucky enough to be at an Ellington concert there a few years before - probably 1963 - I like to think my memory of that concert has merged into this. Put it on the record player, turn up the volume, warn the neighbors - or better still ask them to join you - and immerse yourself.
