Going home / I ain't got nothing but the blues / Ellington medley : Day dream - I didn't know about you - Prelude to a kiss / The Duke / Come Sunday / Swinging at the Cotton Club / Don't get around much anymore / Smokin' / Bring that Duke / It don't mean a thing.

Cet hommage se partage entre standards ellingtoniens et compositions à sa gloire. L'ensemble, quoiqu'un peu grandiloquant par moments, est d'un haut niveau. En plus de la pléiade de vocalistes cités au dessus, il faut signaler la présence de George Duke (claviers, composition et arrangements pour certains morceaux). Daydream et Prelude to a kiss prennent des allures de "soul music". Même Guru, le pape de l'acid-jazz vient pousser son rap sur It don't mean a thing.
