Ellington '65 is an album by American pianist, composer and bandleader Duke Ellington recorded in 1964 and released on the Reprise label in 1965.[1] The album features recordings of popular tunes arranged by Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, a formula which was revisited on Ellington '66 (1966).

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Matt Collar awarded the album 3 stars and stated "While Ellington '65 isn't a bad recording, it is by no means required listening and will most likely appeal to die-hard Ellington completists".[2]
