Late Night Jazz with Duke Ellington

Today's birthday, Edward Kennedy Ellington. Learn more about him on Wikipedia, including street addresses where he lived, his father's interesting employments, and other interesting facts and tidbits I found fun to learn about. While you're doing that, enjoy these fine examples of his work. It'll take you to another time. You may want to get yourself a scotch on the rocks or some other such drink and have a good time of it. Enjoy.

Here's the link that will open in a new window for you: Edward Kennedy (Duke) Ellington

Thanks for reminding us of The Duke. Love those mellow notes! And listening to Louie and the Duke makes me want to take my clarinet down off that shelf and join in.

You're most welcome, Annie. I most certainly think you should take down that clarinet!

You're really on to something here, Frieda. I enjoy this series immensely. Is this going to be a regular thing? If so, I'm sending folks your way.

Frieda Babbley said...

I sure can. I can set them to post every Sunday night at 10pm. Any suggestions let me know. I'm on it. Glad you liked.

I posted on a whim to see how it mulled over. If people want it, I shall make it happen.

I too enjoy these musical posts. Love the Duke. Dr. John did a wonderful tribute album to the Duke titled "Duke Elegant".
