Irving Mills, a music publisher and all-around man about music proved to be the right choice when he secured the prestigious gig at the Cotton Club. When they opened, the band was a ten-piece having been joined by clarinetist Barney Bigard, along with saxophonists...

    Ellington eventually left the Cotton Club and began appearing in cities all over America. In 1933 he embarked upon his most ambitious tour, crossing the Atlantic to appear in Britain. The Duke’s records sold in large numbers, particularly in, “London and university cities,” according to the press. He appeared at the London Palladium for the first t...

    “Take The A Train” was just one of a whole string of amazing recordings made between 1939 and 1942; the orchestra were at their absolute best. But even these were to be eclipsed by the Duke’s first really long work – “Black, Brown and Beige” – which had its premiere at Carnegie Hall in November 1943. The inspiration behind the piece was to tell the...

    By the early 1950s things had become much worse for all of the big bands, Ellington in particular suffered when he lost two of his stalwarts – Johnny Hodges and Sonny Greer; for a while it seemed that the Duke might actually fold his touring band altogether. However the advent of the long-playing record allowed Duke to focus his composing efforts o...

    In the early 60s, Ellington also worked with some younger jazz stars, including, Charles Mingus and John Coltrane, which helped to introduce him to a new generation of fans recently brought into the jazz fold by this new breed of musicians.

    Edward Kennedy Ellington was born April 29, 1899 in Washington D.C. to a middle-class African-American family.

Attracted to the glamorous life that musicians (especially older pianists) seemed to have, he taught himself the piano by watch...

    On December 4, 1927, Irving Mills helped secure the band an audition for a prized spot in the Cotton Club which they won. That was the biggest break of Duke Ellington’s career. Not only was his orchestra performing nightly at the popular club, but the regular radio broadcasts led to the band soon being accurately billed as “Duke Ellington’s Famous ...

Television made it difficult for all big bands to continue. And in 1951, altoist Johnny Hodges ...

And then at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival, when Duke turned Paul Gonsalves loose for a 27-chorus tenor solo during “Diminuendo And Crescendo In Blue,” it not only made headlines but resulted in a complete renaissance for Duke Ellington. Never again would anyone seriously suggest t...
