Veranda Concert with Nancy Tripp: A Duke's Dozen-Jun 22

  • The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens 456 Route 103A (map)
Duke Ellington composed incessantly to the very last days of his life. Music was indeed his mistress; it was his total life and his commitment to it was incomparable and unalterable. In jazz he was a giant among giants. And in twentieth century music, he may yet one day be recognized as one of the half-dozen greatest masters of our time.
— Gunther Schuller
