LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – An enthusiastic and comprehensive review of Matt Cooper’s book, “Duke Ellington as Pianist: A Study of Styles” (The College Music Society, 2013) appears in the June 2015 issue of “Notes: the Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association.”
The review was written by Mark Gridley, a respected jazz scholar and author of one of the most widely used jazz history texts in existence. Cooper is a pianist and professor of music at Eastern Oregon University. His volume represents the first book-length study devoted exclusively to Ellington as a pianist.
