Yale Concert is a live album by American pianist, composer and bandleader Duke Ellington recorded at Woolsey Hall, Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut in 1968 and released on the Fantasy label in 1973.
The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars and stated "The great Duke Ellington Orchestra was still intact and in its late prime at the time of this performance from 1968. With the death of Billy Strayhorn the year before, Ellington (perhaps sensing his own mortality) accelerated his writing activities, proving that even as he neared 70, he was still at his peak".
Only one title, "Boola Boola" was actually recorded in front of an audience. The rest was taped in a studio with audience noise dubbed on.
