4/5. The late 1940s were a difficult time for Duke Ellington. As a new brand of jazz called bebop began to emerge, the demand for big bands declined. And the frequent changes in personnel in the band made it difficult to maintain standards. But Ellington continued to thrive as a bandleader and began to find new outlets for his longer concert pieces. Donald Macleod explores those difficult years and introduces the work regarded by some as Ellington's best extended work - Harlem.
