BH duk 1It was once told to me  that the classics never die and growing up deep in the inner city the things that kept me inspired, entertained and alive with creativity were the classics.  Now, granted we may have been talking about classics like (The Three Stooges) or Laurel & Hardy but still they were classics just the same.   Ahhh, but when it came to music our house was alive with some of the most talented, loved and adored performers and today I present you with one of the greatest.  Mr. Duke Ellington himself or as he may be better known as Sir Duke.

 

I was able to locate some classic footage and since we are here and there is nothing I would love more, I am going to share what I have found with you.  So, go ahead feel free to set back and take a journey back in time with me.  I hope you enjoy all that the Duke has to offer.

Shining the spotlight on others was something he did best.  Here just take a look and see if you can tell who is having more fun.

If you ever wondered what it was like back in the day – you know an era you were not born in, check out the link below and see what it was like at one of the hottest night spots around.  The Famed Cotton Club In Harlem… It was a rocking good time.
