Alvin Ailey originally created this stunning, masterful expression of Duke Ellington’s music as a strong yet serene solo for himself in 1962.  Known to highlight the grace, artistry, and power of the male dancer, Judith Jamison calls the three-minute ballet “a tone poem, a quiet, sparking jewel.”  It has been performed over the years by some of the most formidable of Ailey dancers, including Dudley Williams and Matthew Rushing.
