Duke Ellington
by Andrea Davis Pinkney;  illustrated by Brian Pinkney

One of America's greatest composers, Duke Ellington is born Edward Kennedy Ellington. He is introduced as a smooth talkin,' slick-steppin,' piano playin' kid with his "fine as pie looks and flashy threads," earning him the name "Duke." Lush illustrations perfectly match the jazz inspired prose.
