 "When Billy Strayhorn died of cancer in 1967, Duke Ellington was devastated. His closest friend and arranger had left his life full of music and memories. As a tribute, Ellington and his orchestra almost immediately began recording a tribute to Strayhorn, using the late arranger’s own compositions and charts. The album features well-known and previously unrecorded Strayhorn tunes that showcased his range, versatility, and above all, the quality that Ellington admired him most for: his sensitivity to all the timbral, tonal, and color possibilities an orchestra could bring to a piece of music." - All Music Guide
