    This episode focuses on a renewed sense of innovation in Jazz.

    Duke Ellington is our focus, as he predated most of the big bands, but he kept moving forward and eclipsing the competition. We will hear a few examples of how the Great American Songbook served as a rich source for material for the new breed of soloists as we approach the age of Be-Bop.
