9780826414045: The King of All, Sir Duke: Ellington and the Artistic Revolution

Twenty-five years ago in his hit song, "Sir Duke," Stevie Wonder sings: "Music knows it is and always will be one of the things that life just won't quit. / Here are some of music's basic pioneers that time will not allow us to forget: / There's Basie, Miller, Satchmo, and the King of All, Sir Duke! / And with a voice like Ella's ringing out, there's no way the band can lose! / You can feel it all over!" To say that Ellington was a prominent jazz-band leader of the twentieth century would be like saying William Shakespeare was simply a prominent English playwright of the time. This book begins with personal reflections as well as the life before going on to consider--through anecdote, musical scholarship, and personal interviews--Ellington's profound and direct influence on an amazing range of pop artists: Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Miles Davis (who, in the ultimate tribute, had himself interred next to The Duke in New York's Woodlawn Cemetery), Sun Ra, James Brown, Sly Stone, George Clinton, Prince, Frank Zappa, Charles Mingus, and Ravi Shankar.

About the Author:

Peter Lavezzoli is the author of The King of All, Sir Duke: Ellington and the Artistic Revolution, which is also published by Continuum. As a percussionist and vocalist, Lavezzoli explores the connection between musical and spiritual expression. He lives in Fort Lauderdale, FL

From Publishers Weekly:

His total and contagious awe for one of jazz's greatest composers, bandleaders and ambassadors notwithstanding, Lavezzoli doesn't add much to Ellington's legend. A fellow musician as well as a musicologist, Lavezzoli avoids standard biography in this paean to his hero, describing Ellington's life in just a few pages. The bulk of the book explores other musicians' links to Ellington through interviews with musicians and jazz critics about his life and legacy. Certainly, Ellington has influenced countless musicians viz the book's title, from Stevie Wonder's tribute song but Lavezzoli only partially succeeds at delineating these links. He convincingly cites rocker Frank Zappa's intriguing debts, as a composer and a businessman, to Ellington, but other connections remain vague: that Ellington and funk star George Clinton share an "emphasis on freedom of expression in a large band context" isn't pithy enough. Lavezzoli's interviews sometimes afford vivid behind-the-scenes details: according to one musician, Ellington would chastise a band member who had been carousing too much by featuring him, thereby making him work harder. But often the interviews lapse into lingo too obscure for the nonspecialist, e.g., Butch Ballard describes a fellow musician playing with "A lot of press rolls, closed choke-cymbal stuff, and a whole lot of 2/4." (Apr.)Forecast: Ken Burns's recent PBS blockbuster has summoned a ready audience for all things jazz. But with its combination of overly familiar historical information and inaccessible interview material, this book is unlikely to reach many readers.
