Duke Ellington in District of Columbia

from Duke Ellington: Music is my Mistress, page 73:

As a trumpet player [Arthur Whetsol] had a tonal personality that has never really been duplicated. Sweet, but not syrupy, nor schmaltzy, nor surrealistic, it had a superiority of extrasensory dimensions. Both as a soloist and from the point of view of teamwork, he was a fine musician.
