Music was their Mistress

Described as a ‘speculative drama’ by jazz trumpeter and writer Ian Smith, Blood Count is an imagined meeting of minds between Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn in a 1967  recording studio during which they would commit to tape Strayhorn’s Blood Count.
In Radio 4’s repeat of Drama: Blood Count this afternoon at 2:15 Clark Peters plays the part of Ellington and Don Gilet that of Strayhorn.
