Duke Ellington in his own words

Posted by lostincci on May 14, 2008

Duke Ellington

Dr Harvey Cohen is speaking at the international Duke Ellington 2008 conference here in London, on Friday 23 March 2008 at 4PM. The talk is entitled “Duke Ellington In His Own Words,” and features lots of rare interview recordings with Ellington from Dr Cohen’s research at the Library of Congress in Washington DC. It also serves as a mini-preview of his forthcoming book Duke Ellington’s America (Chicago, 2008).

The conference features live music from big bands and individual jazz musicians. Tickets for students to the conference and music shows are “at least 50% off” – see the website for further details.
