    Duke Ellington's Lost Waltz

    This topic title is the subject line that I'm planning on using when I market this song.

    Legendary jazz figure Duke Ellington wanted also to be known as a composer. My song---"The Duke In Three"---tries to capture the Ellington spirit as both jazzman and composer.

    The idea behind "The Duke..." is that if Ellington had written a concert waltz, this is what it would sound like.

    There are two melodies, each with two variations, and a unique, two-verse coda. I've posted A1 and B1 at www.garglingpelicanmusic.biz.

    I'd be glad to receive any comments about "The Duke..." It's my first song and first time doing computer-based recording. People who want to comment about technical and technique problems may want to limit themselves to the two things that most need to be done. I don't want to take up anybody's entire weekend;-)

    When "The Duke..." is ready, I'll be looking for a recording artist so please do critique this song. It doesn't have to be perfect, but I'll try to make it as good as I can.
