Editorial Reviews

Review

Captured on a 1969 tour by United Artists (and reissued by Blue Note), Duke Ellington's 70th Birthday Concert presents both familiar hits and newer compositions. On Final Speech/Satin Doll, Duke is as commanding and clever as ever, explaining to the audience that the hushed strains of "Satin Doll" are "background to this finger-snapping bit. And you are all cordially invited to join the finger-snapping. I don't have to tell you: One never snaps one's fingers on the beat, it's considered aggressive. Don't push it, just let it fall."
