For fans of Duke Ellington the recent publication of 
The Cambridge Companion to Duke Ellington
is great news.

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.
