As famous as ever - Happy Birthday, Duke

Photos (copies of copies, alas) by my friend, the late Ted Williams (he took many hundreds of The Duke). PS: Not the ballplayer Williams. Wouldn't even know what he looked like. MY Ted is who they shoulda froze


I once saw Ellington perform in his bathrobe at the crack of dawn at N.Y's Apollo. And then, in a tux at Basin Street East. Ummmm. . .just sharing.
