Duke Ellington was one American patriot who truly and gladly symbolized American culture at its finest. Here, in celebration of his 100th birthday, is a collection of tare and exciting live sessions on his home turf around Washington D.C.

Produced in collaboration with the International Duke Ellington Conference, these recordings, made between 1943 and 1962, feature Duke the patriot boosting the morale of U.S servicemen during World War II, helping sell U.S Savings Bonds, promoting Black Pride, and even charming First Lady Pat Nixon at the White House on his 70th birthday.

The music on this CD represents a variety of Ellington constellations, solo piano, trio and three editions of the Duke's Famous Orchestra. Particularly fine solo contributions are made by Rex Stewart, Betty Rochd, Lawrence Brown,Taft Jordan, Ray Nance, AI Sears, Harry Carney, Clark Terry and of course Edward Kermedy Ellington himself.
