Duke's diary 1950 - 1974 Part Two

£55.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Condition: Used Very Good

The Duke's Diary provides a fascinating insight into the life and times of one of the greatest figures in American music, the incomparable Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington. Using contemporary photographs, newspaper reports, advertisements, reviews, and narrative, both volumes chronicle Duke's life, performances, and recording sessions. Volume II begins with Duke's return from his band's European tour in June of 1950 and concludes with his death in 1974. The Ellington Orchestra's complete itinerary, including all known club, concert, theatre, television, film, and jam session appearances are included, as well as a selected list of Duke's recordings-although this volume is not intended as a discography. Vail's unique concept, which pairs photos and news articles with brief diary-style entries, has resulted in a work of enduring interest and charm for every fan of this immensely talented musician. The visual impact created by the stunning array of photos is powerful; readers will feel as though they have been accompanying the great man on his journey through life.
