Jazz with George Thomas on VPR with Billy Strayhorn on Tuesday, 11/29/11 

Tonight it's all Billy Strayhorn: his compositions by himself and with his long-time boss, Duke Ellington. Sweet Pea, as he was known, was so closely associated with Duke Ellington, it's hard to tell where one man's art begins and the other's ends. Compositions such as "Take The "A" Train" and "Lush Life"continue to be played in jazz.
