I början av 1930-talet utvecklade Ellington en elegant "mood music", med drömsta stämningsstycken som Mood indigo och Solitude. Orkestern ökade i numerär gemom åren och fick allt fler personliga och framstående solister. Ellington gav dem stor frihet. Han skrev och arrangerade med tanke på särskilda solister och komponerade ofta tillsammans med musikerna. - - - Trots sin konstnärliga storhet fick Ellington ingen större betydelse för jazzens vidare utveckling. Hans solister gjorde stora insatser inom orkestern, men de lyckades sällan på egen hand när de hade lämnat den.
