In Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington, Terry Teachout reveals the many layers of a man as unique and complex as the music he created. Drawing on candid unpublished interviews with Ellington, revealing oral-history transcripts, and other little-known primary sources, Teachout tells Ellington's story as no one else ever has. Spanning the first three quarters of the 20th century, Ellington's life both reflected and shaped the dynamic cultural shifts of his time.Terry Teachout is a jazz musician, drama critic for the Wall Street Journal, and the author of numerous books including Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong and The Skeptic: A Life of H.L. Mencken.
