All That Jazz: The Metaphysical Narrative Of Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk & Charlie Parker

There are correspondences between individuals or events associated with the ruling elite and the lives of great musicians such as Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker.  The lives of these four musicians together form a revealing metaphysical narrative which tell the story of the past, the present as well as future events. 

Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Thelonious Monk are three of the five so-called Jazz musicians who have been appeared on the cover of Time Magazine.  Ellington composed over 1,000 songs and is the most recorded composer of the genre known as Jazz, while Thelonious Monk is the second most recorded with only 70 compositions to his credit.


The lives of the aforementioned musicians formed a metaphysical narrative which foretold events that did not occur when they were alive such as the election of  Barack Obama as President of the United States.

With Duke Ellington we have esoteric signatures to the Barack Obama, the current President of  the United States. Ellington’s first connection to  the American President is observed in his place of birth.

Ellington was born in Washington, D.C. on April 29, 1889. 

Ellington’s full name is “EDWARD KENNEDY ELLINGTON”, where we see with Ellington’s first name and middle name a reference to one of Obama’s political patrons “Senator Edward Kennedy”. 

Senator Edward Kennedy endorsed the then  democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama providing Obama which a very much-needed boost to his campaign. Senator Kennedy lived from February 22, 1932 to August 25, 2009.  Kennedy on January 20, 2009, attended Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration in Washington, “but then suffered a seizure at the luncheon immediately afterwards. He was taken via wheelchair from the Capitol building and then by ambulance to Washington Hospital Center.”

The  birth and death of Louis Armstrong is connected to the 43rd and the 44th Presidents of the United States. Armstrong’s death fell on the day of birth of George Walker Bush, the 43rd President of  America. Bush 43 was born on July 6, 1946, while Louis Armstrong passed away on July 6, 1971.

Louis Armstrong  was born on August 4, 1901 and provides us with a reference to the birthday of Barack Obama, whose birth date is on August 4, 1961. Observe the presence of the digits 1,4, 8 (The month of August) and 9 in both birth dates.

Louis Armstrong and Barack Obama also share a good relationship with the Jewish community.

Armstrong through his relationship with a Lithuanian-Jewish immigrant family, the Karnofskys, who had a junk hauling business and gave him odd jobs  when he was a young boy. They lent him the money for him to buy his first coronet.

Inspired by the positive treatment he received, Armstrong wore a Star of David around his neck in his adult life. 

A poll by McLaughlin and Associates found that, while 78 percent of Jewish voters cast their ballots for Obama.

Charlie Parker offers references to Obama as well as his mother  Stanley Ann Dunham such as “Kansas” and “Lincoln”.

Charlie Parker was born in Kansas City, Kansas, while Stanley Ann Dunham was born in Wichita, Kansas.  Obama made his mark in the state of Lincoln, better known as Illinois and Charlie Parker attended Lincoln High School in Kansas City, Missouri.


The lives of  Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk provided esoteric references to past historical significant events such as the presence of the Moors. The first esoteric reference to the Moors is observed with Duke Ellington’s whose day of birth is April 29th. 

On April 29th, 711 CE,  1,178 years before the birth of Ellington, the Moors conquered the Iberian Peninsula.

With Ellington there is also Duke University, which is in North Carolina, the state which will host the next Democratic convention in 2012 and is also the birth place of Thelonious Monk.

Thelonious Monk was born in Rocky Mountain, North Carolina on October 10, 1917.   Charlotte, North Carolina will be the site of the 2012 Democratic Convention. Both Thelonious Monk’s birth and the selected site for the Democratic Convention are esoteric references to the Moors.

Charlotte, North Carolina was named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Charlotte of Mecklenburg was born on May 19, 1744 and passed away November 17, 1818. She was the Queen consort of the United Kingdom as the wife of King George III. 

Charlotte of Mecklenburg was also the electress consort of Hanover in the Holy Roman Empire until the promotion of her husband to King of Hanover on 12 October 1814, which made her Queen consort of Hanover.

Queen Charlotte was a patroness of the arts, known to Johann Christian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, among others. She was also an amateur botanist who helped expand Kew Gardens. George III and Charlotte had 15 children, 13 of whom survived to adulthood.

Please note that the May 19th birth day of Charlotte is also shared with Malcolm X.

Charlotte of Mecklenburg was described by her contemporaries as having African features. She is listed by some scholars as “Britain’s First Black Queen.” 

The description of her as having African features was not always complimentary. “She was famously ugly,” says Desmond Shawe-Taylor, surveyor of the Queen’s pictures. “One courtier once said of Charlotte late in life: ‘Her Majesty’s ugliness has quite faded.’ There was quite a miaow factor at court.”

Stuart Jefferies in his article “Was this Britain’s first black queen?” which appeared in  the United Kingdom’s  Guardian  in 2009 wrote:

 “If you google Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, you’ll quickly come across a historian called Mario de Valdes y Cocom. He argues that her features, as seen in royal portraits, were conspicuously African, and contends that they were noted by numerous contemporaries. He claims that the queen, though German, was directly descended from a black branch of the Portuguese royal family, related to Margarita de Castro e Souza, a 15th-century Portuguese noblewoman nine generations removed, whose ancestry she traces from the 13th-century ruler Alfonso III and his lover Madragana, whom Valdes takes to have been a Moor and thus a black African.”

There are still scholars who still debate or down play Queen Charlotte’s African roots. 

Historian J.A. Rogers in his  work  “100 Amazing Facts About The Negro: With Complete Proof” wrote about the Black roots of Queen Charlotte in the 1950s. The information has been around for a long time. 

Due to the implications on white supremacy as well as the European royalty the information has been suppressed and attacked when it resurfaces. The Black roots of Queen Charlotte would mean according to Stuart Jefferies:

” The suggestion that Queen Charlotte was black implies that her granddaughter (Queen Victoria) and her great-great-great-great-granddaughter (Queen Elizabeth II) had African forebears.”

Thelonious Monk’s birth on October 10th an important event in the history of the Moors also took place on the same day.

October 10, 732 in the Battle of Tours, Charles Martel and his men, defeat a large army of Moors, stopping them from spreading into Western Europe. The governor of Cordoba, Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, is killed during the battle. 

Monk’s relationship with Rothschild family member Kathleen Annie Pannonica, also known as Pannonica  de Koenigswarter is somewhat reminiscent of this event in Moorish history

 While on October 10, 732 Charles Martel halted the penetration of the Moors into France, Monk who was born on October 10, 1917 died at the home of Pannonica who was  married to French diplomat Baron Jules de Koenigswarter. They divorced in 1956.

 Thelonious Monk died at Pannonica’s home at 63 Kingswood Road in Weehawken, New Jersey on February 17, 1982.

 The date of Monk’s death equals 39: February 17, 1982=2+17+1+9+8+2=39. 39 was the age that both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. were at the time of their assassinations.


Kathleen Annie Pannonica is described as a patron of the music known as Jazz and is linked to the deaths Monk and Charlie Parker, with both dying in residences of Pannonica.  

 Parker died in the suite of  Pannonica de Koenigswarter at the Stanhope Hotel in New York City while watching The Dorsey Brothers’ Stage Show on television.


Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk all embodied the signature of ROYALTY. The resonance of the metaphysical theme of royalty is identified on various levels including but not limited to thier own individual persona and their associations with others.

Ellington provides with the first reference to royalty with his nickname “Duke”.  Ellington as a young person impressed those around him with his sense of style and dapper conduct. The nickname or title “Duke” was supposedly given to Ellington by his childhood friend Edgar McEntree.

According to Ellington:

“I think he felt that in order for me to be eligible for his constant companionship, I should have a title. So he called me Duke.”

In the Western tradition, Duke is nobleman with the highest hereditary rank historically of highest rank below the monarch.

Louis Armstrong whose day of birth  is shared with Barack Obama and whose day of death is the birthday of George W. Bush was connected to royalty in many ways.

Armstrong was mentored by music great King “Joe” Oliver:

“Oliver mentored Armstrong, giving young Louis his first cornet in New Orleans and later calling him to Chicago to record and play with his band. Louis lovingly remembered Oliver as “Papa Joe” and considered him his idol and inspiration all his life. In Armstrong’s autobiography, “Satchmo – My Life in New Orleans”, he writes about Oliver: It was my ambition to play as he did. I still think that if it had not been for Joe Oliver, Jazz would not be what it is today. He was a creator in his own right.”

 In 1949 Armstrong was bestowed the title of “King of The Zulus” for Mardi Gras. According to the tradition of  the New Orleans African-American community it is an honored role as the head of leading black Carnival Krewe,” but bewildering or offensive to outsiders with their traditional costume of grass-skirts and blackface makeup satirizing southern white attitudes”.

Armstrong was also known to associate with members of the British Royal family. An often repeated story about Louis Armstrong and the British Royal family, has Armstrong handing out to the British Royal family the herbal laxative Swiss Kriss and extolling its virtues.

Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk as previously mentioned were linked to Pannonica de Koenigswarter. Pannonica de Koenigswarter as a member of the Rothschild family was part of the ‘royalty of wealth’, her mother was Hungarian baroness Rozsika Edle von Wertheimstein and her husband was Baron Jules de Koenigswarter.

Charlie Parker’s birthday/earth day  on August 29th is the same as Michael Jackson who is dubbed the “King Of Pop”.

With the exception of Thelonious Monk, each musician has a first name which was the name of past European King. Edward, Louis and Charles were the names of kings that ruled at various times in European history.

 As individuals each of the four musicians briefly examined tell a powerful story of  artistry and the resiliency of their work decades after their deaths.  They have received numerous honors during and/or after their death. 

Duke Ellington,  among his many honors was the first African-American to appear by himself on a circulating U.S. coin.

At Louis Armstrong’s funeral honorary pallbearers included then Governor Rockefeller, New York City Mayor Lindsay, Bing Crosby, Scatman John, Ella Fitzgerald, Guy Lombardo, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Pearl Bailey, Count Basie, Harry James, Frank Sinatra, Ed Sullivan, Earl Wilson, Alan King, Johnny Carson, David Frost, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett and Bobby Hackett.

Together the lives of Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk provide metaphysical signatures to what their lives were like prior to their passing as well as what life would be like for the community from which they emerged.

The four master musicians worked and or were inspired by one another’s work at one time or the other in their individual lives.

Each of these immensely talented persons formed a page in the cosmic metaphysical book of life, which is still being written.
