Here is some more from the Ellington ’94 conference in Stockholm.
One of the afternoon presentations on the second day was by Jan Bruér. He talked about “Duke Ellington in Sweden”.
Later in the afternoon on that day, Andrew Homzy talked about “Duke Ellington in the Avant Garde”.
In the morning of the last day of the conference, Alice Babs and Nils Lindberg sat down together to talk about “There Is Something About Me” – a composition which Ellington gave to Alice Babs on a cassette tape one day in New York and which she later recorded with Nils Lindberg.
