Review by Thom Jurek:
This is a tight little quartet date led by saxophonist Javon Jackson, celebrating the music of the Duke. His co-conspirators on the session are arranger/pianist David Hazeltine, drummer Tony Reedus, and bassist Paul Gill. The material ranges from the obvious like "Caravan," "Chelsea Bridge," and "Lotus Blossom," to selections usually not played by quartets such as "In My Solitude." The emphasis here is on the bluesier and moodier side of Ellington's music, which works beautifully. The colors and textures a larger orchestra display may be richer, but in the quartet setting they can go deeper. It puts additional pressure on the individual players, but Jackson and Hazeltine as front line soloists are more than up to the challenge. The greatest proof of this lies in the ballads like "Warm Valley," and in the more lithe and slightly more up-tempo tunes like "In a Sentimental Mood." This is a fine session, and utterly lyrically beautiful all around.

Tracklist:

1. Caravan (Ellington, Mills, Tizol) 5:19
2. Warm Valley (Ellington) 6:29
3. In My Solitude (DeLange, Ellington, Mills) 5:54
4. Prelude to a Kiss (Ellington, Gordon, Mills) 7:10
5. Things Ain't What They Used to Be (Ellington~Mercer, Persons) 5:03
6. Chelsea Bridge (Strayhorn) 6:36
7. In a Mellow Tone (Ellington) 5:34
8. In a Sentimental Mood (Ellington) 7:02
9. Lotus Blossom (Strayhorn) 5:01
