Duke Ellington & Joan Miro


Duke Ellington, meet Joan Miro

This is magical: Duke Ellington visits a French medieval village overlooking the Cote d’Azur, where he meets another giant: artist Joan Miro. With Miro looking on, Ellington, John Lamb and Sam Woodyard play a new composition that became The Shepherd (Who Watches over the Night Flock). Some fantastic views of Miro’s sculpture.  Thanks to Open Culture for pointing to this clip.
