Duke Ellington: On Film & On Stage
Duke Ellington first demonstrated his ability to write music for the theater in 1924, when he co-wrote a successful, all-black musical revue called "Chocolate Kiddies," starring legendary actress Josephine Baker. Beginning in 1927, Duke's three-year engagement as house bandleader at Harlem's famous Cotton Club further whetted his appetite for writing show music. Surrounded by glamorous entertainers, he was called upon to support such acts with a wide variety of musical settings, delivering outstanding results. Duke was handsome, elegant, well-mannered, and well-spoken, plus he made a point to present his band members in top form. Moreover, his broad appeal transcended racial barriers. As a result, in 1929, Ellington landed a role in a high-profile short film drama titled Black and Tan. Ellington's efforts for film and the stage were integral to his unrelenting pursuit of musical innovation, and they remain vital elements in his tremendous legacy as a composer.
