JAZZ Appreciation Month: Duke Ellington
If you don't believe that this is a well-known song, go up to anybody who says they know music and hum some of it to them. My strong belief is that they'll say, "Oh, yeah, I've heard that."
What is ironic for me is that in my studies of jazz I haven't found anything else by Duke Ellington that I like anywhere near as much as I like this! Haha! Sorry, Sir Duke!
Speaking of which....as an extra candle on the cake as we end Jazz Appreciation here, I present Stevie Wonder doing his smash hit "Sir Duke," which hit #1 in the USA in May 1977.
