DUKE - A Life of Duke Ellington


483 pgs.
Gotham Books, Publ.

"Wall Street Journal" critic Terry Teachout, who played jazz bass professionally before becoming a full-time writer, has drawn on unpublished papers, musical manuscripts, scrapbooks, and transcripts of breathtakingly frank interviews to uncover the facts about the public and private lives of Duke Ellington, placing him in the context of the Harlem Renaissance and examining his influence on twentieth-century art and culture. The first full-length Ellington biography in nearly two decades, "Duke" tells the unvarnished truth about this creative genius.
