Podcast: JoAnn Falletta talks to Gail Wein about her new Duke Ellington CD with Buffalo Philharmonic

Duke Ellington wrote serious music for symphony orchestras […] with great power. I feel that he single-handedly elevated jazz to a level of artistry comparable to all the other art forms. The music is very beautiful; it’s very symphonic, very orchestral.

    I am so excited about this CD – Mood Indigo was the one piece my husband continued to play – also, my grandson is at the U of Louisville for jazz piano – but just interviewed to change to Musicology at Ohio State for his soph year. He recently played (for a martini event) at the Kentucky folk museum on a Wendell Castle piano. I’ll need a few of these CD’s – am glad the boundaries are now fluid. Dorothy Westhafer
