In the last decade of his life, Duke Ellington wrote three Sacred Concerts: 1965 - A Concert of Sacred Music. 1968 - Second Sacred Concert. 1973 - Third Sacred Concert. Ellington called these concerts "the most important thing I have ever done". He said many times that he was not trying to compose a "Mass" (liturgy). The critic Gary Giddins has characterized these concerts as Ellington bringing the Cotton Club revue to the church.

The 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival. The Basin St. West Jazz Club. Composer, Primary Artist.

A Concert of Sacred Music At Grace Cathedral" (also an Emmy-nominated program) is a rare piece of history. Filmed on location at the premier performance on September 16, 1965, it is the first of what would be 3 Concerts of Sacred Music composed by Ellington between 1965 & 1973. These pieces combined classical, jazz, spirituals, gospel, blues music and dance and were performed in churches and cathedrals around the world.

Described as "the best film about Duke Ellington ever made" by the jazz legend himself, "Love You Madly" combines a behind-the-scenes profile with performance footage from Basin St. West Jazz Club, the 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival and the "Concert of Sacred Music" at Grace Cathedral. A second Emmy-nominated. More program captures the full magic of Ellington's 1965 "Concert of Sacred Music," a mix of classical, spirituals, gospel, blues and jazz.
