It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)
We all like music that swings, this one introduced the world to the notion of swing and presaged the swing era by three years. I keep close to the sentiment of the original, it pushed the envelope with some crazy horn parts as it steam rollered along!
This is another signature tune of the Duke Ellington orchestra, along with Take The A Train which I have also have covered. It Don't Mean a Thing was written in 1931 by Duke Ellington with lyrics by Irving Mills
