Reviews :

"This is a nice all-around set by the 1962 Duke Ellington Orchestra. Whether it be the lightweight but fun "Taffy Twist," "I'm Gonna Go Fishin'" (the theme from Anatomy of a Murder) or the many songs revived from decades earlier (such as "What Am I Here For?," "Black and Tan Fantasy" and "Jump for Joy")." AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Age never slowed Duke Ellington. Recorded at four different sessions in 1962 at Bell Studio, The Feeling of Jazz is one of the rarest titles America's greatest composer ever released, and contains both never-before-heard originals as well as reinterpretations of Ellington classics. Performed by the Duke Ellington Orchestra, which included players such as Paul Gonsalves, Johnny Hodges, Harold Baker, and Jimmy Hamilton, the material contains a wealth of spot-on solos and stop-on-a-dime changes.
