In an article by Gene Lees in the monthly magazine, Jazz, there is an intimation that Coltrane's playing may have "undergone another spurt of rapid evolution" as a result of this relatively brief association with Ellington. It is more than possible, for Duke's catalytic influence is unique in jazz. The one certainty is that there is warm, exciting music here which will pleasantly surprise Coltrane and Ellington fans both.

One of the 45rpms reissues not up to snuff.

A favorite album of mine, I have many versions of this release (both on vinyl and cd) and find this one lagging. Separtion is middling, soundstage only fair, and the instruments not fleshed out. It may, indeed, not be worse than any other version, but not worth the 45rpm medium. When compared to reissues from, say, Sterling Sound, this just does not measure up. An outstanding album that deserves better.
