Description: Here, in The Duke Ellington Reader, Mark Tucker offers the first historical anthology of writings about this major African-American musician. The volume includes over a hundred selections -- interviews, critical essays, reviews, memoirs, and over a dozen writings by Ellington himself -- with generous introductions and annotations for each selection provided by the editor. The result is a unique sourcebook that illuminates Ellington's work and reveals the profound impact his music has made on listeners over the years.

The writers gathered here represent a who's who of jazz criticism: Gunther Schuller, Whitney Balliett, Martin Williams, Gary Giddins, Stanley Crouch, Albert Murray, Nat Hentoff, Hugues Panassie, Stanley Dance, to name just a few. Throughout the book, the reader receives a balanced overview of Ellington's life as composer and performer, as public personality and private individual

"Tucker has done far Ellington what Arthur Mendel did far Bach. This is a superb reader". -- American Music
