Timeless Jazz: Celebrating Duke Ellington's 120th Birthday 4/28 + 5/5

3 posts in this topic

With Duke Ellington's 120th birthday being celebrated on April 29, 2019, I combed my collection to try to get a representative sampling of his recordings. I taped the first show and covered the early days up to the end of the Jimmy Blanton era in 1941. I tried to include a few lesser known works in addition to pieces which would remain part of his repertoire for years. I will pick up where I left off for the second show and may include music from as late as 1971.

It airs live on WUTC.org Sunday, April 28th and May 5th from 3 to 5 pm EDT, with repeat broadcasts on the station's H-D2 channel on the following Wednesdays from 10 am to 12 noon EDT.
