Bethesda Blues & Jazz Club: The Duke Ellington Orchestra

February 15, 7:30 pm at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club.


Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington, born April 29, 1899, is regarded as one of the most prolific American composers of the Twentieth century. Ellington led his band from 1923 until his death on May 24, 1974 at the age of 75. At that point, his son Mercer Ellington took leadership of the band. Mercer was an accomplished trumpet player and composer who wrote many songs for his father’s orchestra including the standard “Things Ain’t What They Used to Be.” As director, he toured and recorded the orchestra for the next 22 years until his own death in 1996, when the baton was then passed to Mercer’s son, Paul Mercer Ellington. The Duke Ellington Orchestra has been performing worldwide for the past 91 years under the guidance of three generations of the Ellington family and will continue to do so for many years to come.
