 Notes & Reviews
 
Arranger Mark Masters and baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan share a great love for the music of Duke Ellington and have produced a collection of arrangements that highlight compositions by members of the Duke's sax section. They are joined by saxophonist Pete Christlieb, Gary Foster and Gene Cipriano with a rhythm section of Bill Cunliffe, Jim Warrington and Joe La Barbera. The music spans the work of Harry Carney, Johnny Hodges, Jimmy Hamilton, Paul Gonsalves, Ben Webster and others. Masters and Smulyan deliver with creativity and reverence as they interpret the Ellington tradition.
