  • The second in this nine-LP series of transcriptions documents the 1943 Duke Ellington Orchestra shortly after tenor star Ben Webster had departed, but the band had so many talented soloists that he was barely missed. Volume Two is one of the strongest in this collector's program, containing nine selections (in addition to alternate takes and false starts) that are highlighted by features for Johny Hodges and Ray Nance. ~ Scott Yanow
