A Man Apart: Terry Teachout On Jazz Giant Duke Ellington

Ross Reynolds talks with Wall Street Journal drama critic Terry Teachout about his book, "Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington."

Ellington is regarded as perhaps the greatest jazz composer of the 20th century. The conductor Andre Previn once compared him to Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Prokofiev.
