Barry Ulanov at the time he wroted this book, was the young editor of "Metronome", America's oldest popular music magazine. The author has tried "to present not only the career of Duke Ellington and the collective greatness of the Ellington Orchestra, but to delineate the atmosphere and conditions of thejazz world as well". The book also presents a listing of every phonograph record Duke had made.
