Duke was a King of Jazz

Comments about PBS A Duke Named Ellington DVD:

This DVD contains an excellent program which I first saw on PBS. I was immediately impressed by the sharp video and sound quality and the filmed performances of the Ellington band. I also liked the interviews with such famous jazz pianists as Willy "The Lion" Smith, for example, who talks about the piano "battles" between himself and "Fats" Waller and others, including a young man named Ellington. I still like all of this and more on this classic jazz DVD from PBS. Duke Ellington was truely an American Master, and this disc belongs in the collection of all lovers of jazz, piano, and music. Get your copy before they run out.
