USA, 1953, big band

Duke Ellington and His OrchestraEllington Uptown

I’m not that familiar with or knowledgeable of scat singing, but I like what I hear when it pops up. That kind of extemporaneous vocal improvisation tickles my experimental fancy, especially when it’s laid over butter-smooth music full of swanky, lazing saxophones. This music is from a time when jazz was meant to be danced to.
