C Jam Blues

Lyrics ,Music:Duke Ellington

The song was publishe 1942.

The number was introduced in a Soundie short film.
These three-minute features, produced to be shown on
a jukebox-type player, illustrated the band miming
to a pre-recorded performance.
Entitled “Jam Session” the Soundie was filmed late in 1941
along with four other Ellington numbers.
Duke introduces various band members, who then solo:
Ray Nance (violin), Ben Webster (tenor sax), Rex Stewart (cornet),
Joe “Tricky Sam” Nanton (trombone), and Sonny Greer (drums).
The complete ensemble carries the tune to its finish
with composer Bigard (clarinet) providing some improvised
upper register piping.

“C Jam Blues” was formally recorded under that title in January,
1942, for RCA Victor Records.
It continued be a staple of the Ellington repertoire,
generally featuring a handful of the soloists in the band.

Baby, take me down to Duke's place
Wildest box in town is Duke's place
Love that piano sound in Duke's place
Saxes do their tricks in Duke's place

Fellas swing their chicks in Duke's place
Come on, get your kicks in Duke's place
You find yourself a seat, and when you want to eat
You look around and yell waiter

You fill your cup chock full of dreams and drink it up
You're jetting along with your girlie
It's after three o'clock, but, baby, it's still early
If you've never been to Duke's place
Take your tootsies into Duke's place
Life is in a spin in Duke's place
