Other Information: Ellington's actual name is Edward Kennedy Ellington. Even though the majority of his work was in popular jazz idioms, Ellington composed a small quantity of works for classical ensembles and one opera. His music has influenced many composers in a variety of idioms. Below is an essay from contributor, Richard V. Duffy, who is working on a book about Ellington. EDWARD "DUKE" ELLINGTON "THE ENTREPRENEUR OF COMPOSITION" In the year 1999, The Pulitzer Prize-Special Award was bestowed posthumously on Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington commemorating the centennial year of his birth, April 29, 1899; in recognition of his musical genius, which brought to the surface his sensitivity to art and beauty, for the principles of democracy-through the medium of jazz and popular music, made an indelible contribution to art and culture. By the time of his passing, and even before that, Ellington was viewed as one of the greatest of all composers and musicians. The French government honored him with the highest award, the Legion of Honor; the United States government bestowed upon him the highest civil honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The Duke was known to have entertained royalty, and, those whom abode in the more common idiom of life. By the end of his fifty-year entertainment span, Ellington had played over 20,000 performances-world wide....he was the Duke, the Duke of Ellington.

Washington, D.C. Ellington made his first professional appearance as a jazz pianist in 1916. By 1918 he had formed a band, and after appearances in nightclubs in Harlem he became one of the most famous figures in American jazz. Ellington's orchestra, playing his own compositions and arrangements, achieved a fine unity of style and made many innovations in the jazz idiom. Many instrumental virtuosos worked closely with Ellington for long periods of time. His best-known short works are Mood Indigo, Solitude, and Sophisticated Lady. He also wrote jazz works of complex orchestration and ambitious scope for concert presentation, notably Creole Rhapsody Black, Brown and Beige

This 1934 musical mystery has girls,
grins, guns, and Duke Ellington, too

BY ALAN VANNEMAN "Through these portals pass the most beautiful girls in the world." That was the legend above the entrance of Vanities were potent enough to inspire four movies: Murder at the Vanities (1945), and Earl Carroll Sketchbook (1946). Only the first, which is almost undoubtedly the best, is available on video. Murder at the Vanities is an intriguing cross between two genres, the murder mystery and backstage musical. Remarkably enough, it enjoys the strengths of both and the weaknesses of neither. The basic conceit of the film is that the murder (two of them, actually) must be both committed and solved during the course of the premiere performance of the Vanities. The focal point of Murder at the Vanities is stage manager Jack Oakie , who naturally wants to shut the place down. Paris , but by the time she hit the big screen she was pure Upper East Side. Carlisle kicks things off musically with "Where Do They Come From and Where Do They Go?", a number introducing us to the Vanities girls. (Strangely, we never really do find out where they come from or where they go.) Carlisle and Brisson have a funny desert island number together, "Live and Love Tonight," which features chorus girls covered with ostrich feathers pretending to be waves. They also sing "Cocktails for Two," a salute to the demise of Prohibition.

58. Claude Bolling
Comments on his musical abilities with special emphasis on his friendship with and interpretation of duke ellington.
Claude Bolling
in accordance with Caid Music Claude Bolling is a world famous French jazz pianist, composer, arranger and conductor, who virtually defined the concept of jazz-classical crossover with his groundbreaking work "Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano" (CBS) which stayed Number 1 on the US Billboard's charts for a phenomenal 464 weeks ! His works are also very important in film music with more than a hundred compositions to his credit !
Claude Bolling is often referred to as "Duke Ellington's spiritual son", not only because he was a protege and close friend of the jazz legend, but because he is the best living interpreter of Ellington's sound.
As a player, his skill with the keyboard and deep feeling about his music is immediately heard and as an entertainer, it is always very apparent that this man actually enjoys communicating with audience members and bringing them to their feet !
Three formulas available
- big band (Claude Bolling + 18)
- quintet (Claude Bolling + doublebass + drums/percussions + trumpet/bugle +
- "classical and jazz" trio (Claude Bolling + doublebass + drums/percussions)

Ellington, Duke,
Ellington Reprinted with permission of down beat magazine byname of EDWARD KENNEDY ELLINGTON (b. April 29, 1899, Washington, D.C.d. May 24, 1974, New York City), American composer, bandleader, and pianist who is among the most significant figures in jazz history and, along with Fletcher Henderson and Don Redman, was one of the founders of big-band jazz, which led to the swing era. Ellington studied piano from age seven and in his teens was influenced by ragtime pianists; at 17 he began to play professionally. The following year he renounced the fine arts, toward which his parents had oriented him, to devote himself to jazz. In about 1923, at the Kentucky Club in New York City, he led a small group that was later the core of his large band. In this period, the group contained Harry Carney, Sonny Greer, and, above all, Bubber Miley and Tricky Sam Nanton. Their tense or piercing sonorities constituted the essential element of the "jungle style" that asserted itself in pieces such as "Black and Tan Fantasy." Almost without interruption from then until his death, Ellington led a band that was his laboratory for composition
