For fans of Duke Ellington the recent publication of
The Cambridge Companion to Duke Ellington

It is also great news for
Florence Mills fans, as it includes Marcello Piras's scholarly article
"Duke and Descriptive Music"
which documents in technical detail, how Ellington's "Black Beauty" is a musical portrait of Florence Mills.
