Duke Ellington – The Artist

Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington (1899 – 1974) was an American composer, pianist, and leader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death over a career spanning more than six decades. Some of the jazz musicians who were members of Ellington’s orchestra, such as saxophonist Johnny Hodges, are considered to be among the best players in the idiom. Ellington melded them into the best-known orchestral unit in the history of jazz. Some members stayed with the orchestra for several decades. A master at writing miniatures for the three-minute 78 rpm recording format, Ellington wrote more than one thousand compositions; his extensive body of work is the largest recorded personal jazz legacy, with many of his pieces having become standards.

Blue Skies – The Song

“Blue Skies” is a jazz song written by Francis Day and Hunter. It was originally released on  78rpm format in the 40s. The E.P. from which this song was taken is undated and also includes the song ‘Magenta Haze’ on the a-side.

Duke Ellington Memorial Statue – The Shape

This extended play record has been modelled into a silhouette of the top section of the Duke Ellington Memorial. The Duke Ellington Memorial by Robert Graham is installed at Duke Ellington Circle in Manhattan, New York City, New York. The monument depicts Duke Ellington at a piano, supported by three columns depicting three caryatids each. It was cast in 1997 and dedicated on July 1 of that year.
