This anecdotal biography of the musical legend draws on reminiscences of his family, close friends, band members, and business associates, as well as the Duke himself. The quotations are presented free of authorial (or perhaps more accurately, editorial) contextualization other than brief chapter introductions. Sources for each interview quoted, many of them archival, are painstakingly notated, and an exhaustive discography is also included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
