Inspired by Duke Ellington

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974) was an American composer, pianist and bandleader of jazz orchestras. His career spanned over 50 years. Beginning with a 1927 Cotton Club engagement, Ellington made his swinging orchestra a vital part of U.S. popular music. Radio broadcasts, annual concerts at Carnegie Hall, and sold-out tours made him a one of a kind household name. He wrote over 2,000 compositions.
