  1. BMR Remembers: Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974) was an American composer, pianist, and bandleader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death in a career spanning over fifty years. Due to his inventive use of the orchestra, or big band, and thanks to his eloquence and charisma, Ellington is generally considered to have elevated the perception of jazz to an art form on a par with other more traditional musical genres. Ellington composed incessantly to the very last days of his life. In jazz he was a giant among giants. #dukeellington #jazz #artist #songwriter #producer #musician #soul #rnb #pop #rocknroll #music #video #song #album #record #vinyl #cd #photo #pic #birthday #legend #dj #blackmaleradio
