AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

In 1965 Duke Ellington appeared at a concert with Arthur Fielder’s Boston Pops Orchestra and a recording resulted. Ellington’s piano is fine throughout this LP but unfortunately the arrangements were written by Richard Hayman and are hilariously overblown and pompous; “Caravan” is an unintentional scream. Those Ellington collectors without a strong sense of humor are obliged to skip this odd greatest-hits performance.
