エリントン自身は、彼の音楽を”ジャズ”とカテゴライズされるよりは

”アメリカン・ミュージック”とされることを望んだそうです。

移民国家であり、実験国家。そして妄想力の高い人間が勝つ国アメリカ。
そのことをイメージせずにはいられない40年代以降のエリントンの音楽に迫ります。

Duke Ellington brought a level of style and sophistication to Jazz that it hadn’t seen before. Although he was a gifted piano player, his orchestra was his principal instrument. Like Jelly Roll Morton before him, he considered himself to be a composer and arranger, rather than just a musician.

Throughout the Forties and Fifties Ellington’s fame and influence continued to grow.

The band continued to produce Jazz standards like "Take the ‘A’ Train", "Perdido", "The ‘C’ Jam Blues" and "Satin Doll".

In the 1960s Duke wrote several religious pieces, and composed "The Far East Suite".

He also collaborated with a very diverse group of musicians whose styles spanned the history of Jazz. He played in a trio with Charles Mingus and Max Roach, sat in with both the Louis Armstrong All-Stars and the John Coltrane Quartet, and he had a double big-band date with Count Basie.

In the 1970s many of Ellington’s long time band members had died, but the band continued to attract outstanding musicians even after Ellington’s death from cancer in 1974, when his son Mercer took over the reins of the band.
