Though best known for jazz-based originals such as “Mood Indigo” “Satin Doll," Washington, DC native Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington also composed equally entrancing (though lesser known) titles influenced by nature. We will listen to pieces such as 1927’s “Rainy Nights,” and 1959’s “Sunset And The Mockingbird,” interspersed with quotes by Ellington (and noted critics) about these titles. One Sunday: October 25, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Online Class.
