This is a great book that gives insight into the mind and music of Duke Ellington. It is an important chronicling of the Maestro's development from his early years through 50+ years of performance and traveling.
An in-depth account of the life of one of the most oblique public speakers in music history? Surely this has to be worth a read. In his interviews, some of which are included in the apendices, Ellington perfected a never-quite-to-the-point manner of speaking, which according to some, originated after the critical failure of his first major concert work - Black, Brown and Beige. For the Ellington scholar this can be irritating to say the least. This book provides the reader, be they scholar or simply jazz enthusiast, with an insight into the ways in which the jazz world functioned throughout the Duke's life. He also tackles his music, his modes of composition, plus childhood and culture and its influence on his playing style.
This book if packed with important names and faces (many original photographs), programs and other factual evidence that make it an enchanting read for any jazz enthusiast. It does, however, become quite repetetive in the last quarter, so selective reading is advisable.
