  • about this album

    For its label debut, the World Saxophone Quartet explores the vast Ellington catalog, injecting its avant-garde sensibilities into classics like “Take the A Train,” “In a Sentimental Mood,” and “Come Sunday.” The New York Times called the album “a remarkable tribute—virtually a collaboration between generations, wry and piquant and full of affection.”
