Duke Ellington

It's a jazz truism that, though Duke Ellington played piano, his real instrument was his band. But it's also true that he had a great and unique keyboard style, as full of colour and imagination as his orchestrations. Geoffrey Smith Jazz will present the full glory of Ellington the pianist, in solos and ensembles large and small.
