Reception

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars and stated, "Although Duke apparently planned very little in advance, his program is a well-rounded set of old standards and newer (and more obscure) works. A week short of his 73rd birthday, Ellington's fingers sound a little rusty in spots, but he clearly gets stronger as the concert progresses".[2]
