A Portrait of Duke Ellington in words and music
Written and introduced by Derek Jewell
Fifty years ago, DUKE ELLINGTON led his first big band into the Cotton Club in New York. With the nationwide broadcasts which followed, the engagement was the springboard from which Edward Kennedy Ellington took off to be acknowledged as the greatest bandleader in the world, and perhaps the most outstanding composer America has yet produced. The programme portrays his genius through his music, his own words and those of his family and musicians. Producer
