Twelve new arrangements of lesser known Ellington/ Strayhorn gems are tackled by this superb new ensemble, featuring some of the finest soloists around. The musicians include Tony Coe, Bruce Adams and Andy Panayi and the superb writing and playing enable this small group to wield the power and dynamics of a big band in an inspired studio session.
