Notes & Reviews:

Duke Ellington was a master of Big Band jazz but he also wrote in a variety of other forms including tone poems and ballets. The evocative Harlem pays tribute to Ellington's roots while Black, Brown and Beige sets work songs and spirituals.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Ellington's pieces are enjoyable. The orchestra plays them fairly well; they don't have the grit and looseness of the recordings Ellington collaborator Maurice Peress made with the American Composers Orchestra.

MusicWeb International, February 2013
A vital and very generous collection showcasing a concert Ellington who loved his commercial roots yet had more to give and gave it.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2013
This new set of Ellington compositions by JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic shows the ducal legacy right at home in the concert hall...The Buffalo forces deliver his portrait of Harlem with bounce and brio.
