So right to say that you will love this recording madly...if you can ever chance upon a copy. I saw it ONCE as a child and it was one of my musical memories to keep always. When Duke plays a medley and goes into Things Ain't What They Used to Be, the crowd's roar sounds like liftoff of a jumbo jet, with everyone rocking and clapping along to the beat. Duke's likable air of superiority during the whole thing is one of the mysteries - you can't help being charmed by him as he coolly accepts his dues and blows kisses. He also does the finger snapping "We Love You Madly" bit which was the standard close to his shows. It is a wonderful program and it is a crying shame keeping the film from a general release.
