Yale Concert Live album by Released 1973 Recorded January 26, 1968 Genre Jazz Label Fantasy Duke Ellington chronology
The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars and stated "The great Duke Ellington Orchestra was still intact and in its late prime at the time of this performance from 1968. With the death of Billy Strayhorn the year before, Ellington (perhaps sensing his own mortality) accelerated his writing activities, proving that even as he neared 70, he was still at his peak".
