Duke Ellington returns to New York City after being persuaded by Fats Waller. His first stay had been a disaster. He works for Ada Bricktop Smith. His first job is at the Hollywood Club (later the Kentucky Club). He also works at Barron's in Harlem. The Duke finally becomes the official band leader. Snowden, the original band leader, leaves and is replaced by Fred Guy.
