Appreciating Jazz Podcast Part 8 – Duke Ellington

Duke Ellington was one of the most significant musicians in jazz.  His influence is particularly far reaching because he was not only an important pianist, but also a highly creative and original composer and also led one of the longest-lived and most stable big bands in jazz history.  This podcast discusses Ellington’s music, personality, and also that of some of the more important sidemen who performed with Ellington throughout his career.
