Duke Ellington signed with Frank Sinatra's new Reprise label, but the association with the label was short-lived 1960-63. Musicians who had previously worked with Ellington returned to the Orchestra as members: Lawrence Brown in 1960 and Cootie Williams in 1962. "The writing and playing of music is a matter of intent.... You can't just throw a paint brush against the wall and call whatever happens art. My music fits the tonal personality of the player. I think too strongly in terms of altering my music to fit the performer to be impressed by accidental music. You can't take doodling seriously." Sold to Warner Bros. in early 1963. Many of the older artists were dropped by Warner Bros. when Sinatra sold the label to due to insufficient album sales.
