The 8th Ellington Study Group Conference took place in Ottawa May 17-20, 1990
The lead organisers of the conference were Arnvid Meyer, Niels Toft and Karl Emil Knudsen – three leading figures in the Danish jazz and Ellington community. They organised the conference together with the recently founded ”The Scandinavian Duke Ellington Society – Danish Chapter”.
DEMS published a report from the conference in its 1990-3 issue. It was written by Susan Markle but it seems to originally have appeared in another publication.
