#BOTD in 1899: Celebrating #DukeEllington 118th birthday! Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington was born April 29, 1899 at 2129 Ward Place, NW in Washington, DC, and died on May 24, 1974 in New York City. The Duke’s staggering number of musical compositions (over 3,000) into multi-disciplinary theatrical presentations and educational programs, to be performed in many different types of venues all over the globe personifies his musical legacy and the term 'beyond category’. He was America's most prolific composer of the 20th century in both volume and variety. #Discover "The Early Side of Duke" in #DC through the lens of his family, WATCH THE STORY: http://bit.ly/2pvHpQD #ustreetdc #blackbroadway #dukeshometown #happybirthdaydukeellington #jazzmaster #music #jazz #icon #dcellingtonia #dukesplace #blackbroadwayonu #howardtheatre #dukeserenaders #thewashingtonians #ellingtonforever #jazzappreciationmonth
