Much as I appreciate Copland, I'm still backing Ellington as America's greatest composer.

But call me crazy.

If you look at my profile, you'll see Copland listed in the favorite music section: I agree with you that he is America's greatest (traditional) composer. I adore Appalachian Spring (Copland Conducts Copland is the CD I have of it) and have copped many licks from him. He certainly understood the implications of the overtone series!

As for Ellington, mmmmm... no. He wrote nice short stuff, but his larger forms leave something to be desired, IMO. I would say Gershwin nailed the jazz/classical mix, but he tragically died much too young. Who knows what he might have come up with if he'd have been composing into his sixties?
