"Jazz performer, composer, and band leader Duke Ellington was a complex, talented man who also displayed personal weaknesses. Focusing on his prodigious volume of compositions and his skill as an orchestra director, Teachout also provides details about Ellington's tumultuous personal life and his relationships with collaborators."
