About

An iconoclastic genius and prolific composer, Duke Ellington transcended boundaries to fill the world with a treasure trove of music. In a career spanning 50 years, Ellington wrote more than 3,000 songs, played more than 20,000 performances, and gave American music its own sound for the first time. JazzReach’s ELLINGTON!—an engaging, interactive, multimedia program designed especially for young audiences—illuminates the Duke’s musical achievements, from hit songs to blues riffs to extended suites and scores for stage and screen. The critically acclaimed Metta Quintet performs live for this inspirational story of a remarkable man, musician, and bandleader.
