Title Details
Duke by Teachout, Terry
Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington
by Teachout, Terry
 
The greatest jazz composer of the 20th century was an impenetrably enigmatic personality whom no one, not even his closest friends, claimed to understand. This volume peels away countless layers of Ellington's evasion and public deception to tell the unvarnished truth about the creative genius who inspired Miles Davis to say, "All the musicians should get together one certain day and get down on their knees and thank Duke."
 
Published 2013 by Gotham Books, Hardcover, 496 Pages, ISBN: 9781592407491, ISBN-10: 1592407498, List Price $30.00.
