Ellington '66 is an album by American pianist, composer and bandleader Duke Ellington recorded and released on the Reprise label in 1965.[1] The album won a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Jazz Performance - Large Group or Soloist with Large Group in 1966.[2]


The Allmusic review by Matt Collar awarded the album 3½ stars and stated "Ellington '66 is yet another example of how the change in popular music toward an all rock & roll format found jazz musicians attempting crossover material with varying degrees of success... While Ellington '66 isn't a bad recording and actually bests '65 for sheer listening pleasure, it is by no means required listening and will most likely appeal to die-hard Ellington completists".[3]
