Not Duke Ellington, but close

East Village

The elegant John Rainbow, bass baritone extraordinaire, is a throwback to the 1940s in dress, manner and gentility.

Tonight (Monday) at 7 p.m. he'll sing the Duke Ellington song "Come Sunday" in a memorial to Mr. Ellington's nephew Michael James, who recently passed away. The service is at St. Peter's Church, East 54th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan.

What a great portrait, Michael. I wish I could hear him sing.

Yes, yes, a very classy gentleman.
