      It’s one of Ellington’s best tunes; Satch sang it beautifully. I’ve never seen a critic say it but I’ve always been impressed by his command of the volume of his singing. His trumpet playing was decades past his best; Ellington’s left hand had become ever lazier, but his right still played lovely stuff. Thoroughly enjoyable.

      But I’m biased: I own the CD.

      It’s quite a testament to Satch that even on dirges his trumpet sounds so breezy and effervescent. That clarinet sounds sweet too. But somebody needs to wake Duke up. Not a lot of life in his tinkling.
