This Day in History

Written by Brandon Boyer

April 29, 1899- Duke Ellington’s Birthday

On this day in 1899, jazz musician Duke Ellington was born in Washington D.C. Raised in a musical family, Ellington was given the nickname “Duke” for his “gentlemanly ways.” In the 1920s, Ellington began performing with a band in Broadway clubs before rising to fame in the 1940s with songs such as “Sophisticated Lady”, “Prelude to a Kiss”, and most famously, “Take the A Train.” Ellington would compose thousands of songs throughout his career, transcending the genre boundaries of jazz to play what he referred to as “American Music” before his death in 1974. His last words were, “Music is how I live, why I live and how I will be remembered.”
