Happy Birthday Duke Ellington

Play
Read more
You must feel sorry for some great musicians when their birthday rolls around, because some of them share April 29th the same anniversary as Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington, America’s greatest composer, born in Washington. D.C. in 1899. For almost a half-century, Ellington wrote music of the highest order of art that also appealed to the general public. On the program today we celebrate Duke's birthday with some recordings from a five disc set call "The Uncollected Duke Ellington." These were recorded in 1946 and 1947. We'll also finish Duke's biography since in the past I always run out of time. I hope you enjoy this special birthday salute to one of America's greatest composers and bandleaders, Duke Ellington.
