TT: At least a thousand words
I'm now assembling and obtaining permission to reprint the photographs that I plan to include in Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington. I recently ran across this "image" (as we say in the publishing business) in the course of my research. Nothing that I could possibly say about it would be as eloquent as the thing itself.
If you want to understand what Ellington's life as an American artist was like, this explains a good-sized chunk of it.
