THE SELAflJUBILEESINdRS
The Duke Ellington crew
provided a different brand of
entertainment for the listening
public over the National Broad
casting ^yatem when the crew
appeared on the Famous Fitch
Bandwagon program on Sunday,
May 30. Featuring many of his
own qompositions arranged
his own \)«ique style, the
‘Duke’ really presented a pro
gram jrhich was well wortH
menticping. The ‘Duke's’ style
)S a hand-over from the primi
tive nutive style which featured
a tantalizing rhythm supported
by the lonely wail of his reeds,
highlighted by rustic brass ef
fects. The Elljngton Orefiifstru,
still ftesh from its much publii-
ized appearance at Carnuiii'“
Hall, ^s one of the only Negro
Bands ever to appear on this
much-ijioted musical program,
have include; Cab Callloway aut)
Count Basie. . «
