Duke Ellington, New York City 1959


One of the most influential figures in American music history, composer/pianist/bandleader Edward Kennedy Duke Ellington combined jazz, popular, world music and popular strains of sound to create an eternal swinging music that remains beyond category. This iconic portrait of the Duke was taken by Don Hunstein in 1959, the year Ellington snapped up a trio of Grammys for his musical score for the Otto Preminger film, Anatomy of a Murder, one of the first Hollywood films to feature a jazz soundtrack.
