Subject: 	Shakespeare and Duke Ellington

In yesterday's post on "Events in Stratford (Ont)" by Tanya Gough, I 
included an Editor's Note calling attention to three recent pieces by 
Fran Teague that dealt with the Ellington-jazz and Shakespeare connection.

Fran modestly wrote me to say that Steve Buhler and Doug Lanier in 
essays that appeared in that same issue of B&L as hers have the most to 
say about Ellington's engagement with Shakespeare. These three 
originally presented their papers in a memorable panel, "The Duke's Man: 
Ellington, Shakespeare and Jazz Adaptation," at the SAA Annual Meeting 
in New Orleans in 2004. The panel was moderated by Terence Hawkes, who 
provides an introduction to the essay cluster that appeared in the 
inaugural issue of <I>Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare 
and Appropriation</I>, 
http://lachesis.english.uga.edu/cocoon/borrowers/11_index. I proudly 
note that all four of these eminent Shakespeareans - Fran, Steve, Doug, 
and Terry - are all long-time members of SHAKSPER.
