Picked up this two-LP 1977 set:

https://www.amazon.com/Ellington-Forever-Vol-Kenny-Burrell/dp/B000000XHF/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1529336962&sr=1-2&keywords=burrell+ellington

at an estate sale the other day for $2 and have been pleasantly surprised. Nice mix of players (Joe Henderson, Jimmy Smith, Jerome Richardson, Snooky Young, Thad Jones, Gary Bartz, Quentin Jackson, Nat Adderley, Philly Joe, Jimmy Jones, Roland Hanna, et al.) in shifting groups of various sizes, and everyone (Burrell included) seems relaxed and very engaged -- it's like a party where  all involved are happy they've been invited and are having a good time. Smith's unusually thoughtful linear solo on "A Train," for example, is a gem, and Hanna's comping and solo work are  superb. Vol. 1 (recorded several months before) is said to be even better; I've ordered it. Only drawback is Fantasy's somewhat claustrophobic mid-'70s studio sound, but the ear adjusts.

I think Vol. 1 is just a shade better. But I'm with you: Vol. 2 is no collection of barrel-scrapings. Both volumes are well worth hearing. :tup
