Ken Steiner first fell under the spell of Duke Ellington’s music when he heard Duke in concert at Georgetown University on February 10, 1974. He’s been researching Ellington ever since.
He will talk about Rare and unissued recordings from the Steven Lasker Collection on 29 April. The abstract of this presentation is here.
“Steven Lasker shares some never-issued Ellington rarities from his collection with Ellington 2022. They will be presented by Ken Steiner and the presentation will open with selections from a discographically-unlisted 1937 Cotton Club broadcast. It will be followed by a number of other “goodies”.”
Steiner will also be one of the presenters in the panel Duke Ellington’s visit to the University of Wisconsin July 1972.
