FARAI CHIDEYA, host:
(Soundbite of music)
CHIDEYA: And now a different kind of tribute. This Sunday marks the birth of jazz legend Duke Ellington. He was born April 29th, 1899, in Washington, D.C. So we thought we'd end the show by putting you in a sentimental mood.
(Soundbite of song "In A Sentimental Mood")
