Duke Ellington – “Washington Wobble”

There is some debate as to the origin of this Duke Ellington title. “Washington Wobble” might pay tribute to the earthquake-prone Evergreen State; Others claim it refers to Elmer Fudd, describing our elected or appointed officials and their well-heeled lobbyists in Ellington’s birthplace of Washington, DC! Either way, it cooks from start to finish with some great up-tempo section work and lively solo playing, and today is a fine day to post some classic American music.
