On May 18, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem will launch “Forever Ellington,” an auction of the late Duke Ellington’s personal treasures and a celebration of his influence and 50 year career, reports Jet Magazine.

Included in the auction are over 250 items such as original music manuscripts, Duke’s white grand piano, suits, tuxedos and other items from his clothing collection, paintings he created and much more.

The live auction will be hosted by Guernsey’s auction house. Music fans can also make digital bids on liveauctioneers.com or invaluable.com.

The National Jazz Museum in Harlem is in the heart of the historic community that housed the original Cotton Club where Duke led the Harlem Renaissance.
