Ellington ‘s Birthday

Anna Walker, late great-aunt, former Broadway hoofer, and later dance teacher (she could do a perfect Rockettes line kick at the age of 80), always celebrated Duke Ellington’s birthday and extraordinary musical legacy.

Today is his birthday, so a toast to Ellington and to Anna with his famous tag line, “I love you; I love you madly.”
