Ellington considered two topics to be off-limits: illness and death. It was for this reason he refused to make a will to the last, fearful of tempting fate and provoking his own demise. He was able to maintain his orchestra ("the most important thing in my life") with the millions he earned from Tempo, his music publishing company - always conscious of the need to surround himself with individualists; some players stayed with him for decades. Almost constantly on the road following his comeback in Newport in 1956, his career staging posts were largely marked by the studio recordings. He released around 35 albums between 1960 and 1967 alone, including adaptations of classical works, the "Far East Suite" and the "Sacred Concerts". 1967 was a year of triumphs: the outstanding trumpeter Cootie Williams, unbelievable in "The Shepherd", was back on board; but then tragedy struck again a few weeks after the Stuttgart concert with the death of Duke's alter ego Billy Strayhorn.

The unique sound of the orchestra has been wonderfully captured by the recording engineers, aided by the Liederhalle acoustic, and the entire programme is a stylistic tour d'horizon through all phases of the band's history over four decades. "Johnny Come Lately" breaks the ice, before Russell Procope plumbs the depths of the clarinet's lower register to conjure up the sound of the jungle in "Swamp Goo". Paul Gonsalves' tenor saxophone then dances its way through "Knob Hill" and is followed by "La Plus Belle Africaine", which sees the rhythm section shine with some lively articulation from bass player John Lamb. Harry Carney's baritone subsequently brings things up close and personal in "A Chromatic Love Affair".
