9780306806148: Beyond Category: The Life and Genius of Duke Ellington

One of the twentieth century's greatest composers, Duke Ellington (1899--1974) led a fascinating life. Beyond Category, the first biography to draw on the vast Duke Ellington archives at the Smithsonian Institution, recounts his remarkable career: his childhood in Washington, D.C., and his musical apprenticeship in Harlem; his long engagement at the Cotton Club; the challenging years of the depression; his tours to Europe and into America's deep South, where he helped lower racial barriers; the postwar years when television and bebop threatened to eclipse the big bands; Ellington's own triumphant comeback at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival; his collaborations with Billy Strayhorn, Johnny Hodges, and Ella Fitzgerald; as well as five decades of hits and masterpieces that constantly broke new ground.The art of Duke Ellington was a musical expression of the African-American experience, in all its pain, pride, and glory. He composed his music as he composed his life--with flair, passion, and individuality--and no book reveals the man and his artistic evolution more brilliantly than Beyond Category.

Descrizione libro The Perseus Books Group, United States, 1995. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Da Capo Press.. 229 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.No one led a band like Duke Ellington, no one led a life like Duke Ellington, and no one wrote music like Duke Ellington: he was one of a kind, beyond category. One of the twentieth century s greatest artists, Ellington led a fascinating life. Despite this, there have been few major biographies and none that adequately assesses his musical achievement. This is the first biography to draw on the thousands of pages of scrapbooks, letters, business records, musical manuscripts, and photographs in the Duke Ellington archives at the Smithsonian Institution. In Beyond Category, John Edward Hasse has written a life story of great depth and beauty. Ellington was acclaimed in his lifetime as a bandleader, but Hasse explores the source of Duke s genius in his skill as a composer and musical problem-solver. Unlike other great bandleaders, Ellington personally created most of the music played by his orchestra. With characteristic musical sensitivity, he wrote pieces that were designed for specific players, many of whom are discussed in this book. In addition, in a career spanning five decades, Ellington overcame one racial barrier after another and added hundreds of musical treasures to our national heritage. Hasse offers new insights into Ellington s personality and his business affairs, and provides a new assessment of Ellington s ambitiousness (including his efforts to meet a series of American Presidents) and brilliance at taking individuality to an artistic zenith. This is a thorough, balanced, yet admiring portrait of Ellington and his enormous achievement. In this book, Hasse also guides both the novice and the devoted fan through the bewildering array of Ellington recordings, selectingand commenting on the most essential ones from each period of Ellington s career.
