Duke Ellington's Cat
From the venue:
A Musical Giant and his Cool Cat
Written and directed by Jon Ludwig
On the road with jazz great Duke Ellington is one cool cat. From the early days in the pool halls to the concert halls performing before crowned heads, this feisty feline has been at Duke's side, sometimes even sitting in with the band. But not everything is in rhythm. One day when Duke is scheduled to play a suite in honor of the Queen of England, the score has been stolen!
Will the cat find the music and get it to the Duke in time?
This lyrical look at the life and times of one of America's musical giants gets right in the middle of a career that spanned from the Roaring Twenties through the Civil Rights Movement.
