How did Duke Ellington impact america ?
Im doing a report and i can not figure out this. does anyone know ?
He was the greatest jazz musician ever . He made Americans feel better during an era when we were " down " ( 2 wars , the Great Depression, etc.) . His music is popular with young people today , proving it will live on , for generation , to come .
well he was one of the founders of jazz (kinda) he made ALOT of jazz songs, and jazz impacted America, because jazz turned into old music which turned into pop which turned into rap! :)
