Duke Ellington – “Washington Wobble”

Post image for 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.

Hi There,
Ive tried to get in touch with the official Duke Ellington site but they have not replied, Do you have any idea how I can obtain permission or do you know of a direct contact.
Any help gratefully received!

It’s public domain so just download the mp3 provided right here and you can use it anyway you want.

The only use once the song is downloaded is to listen and enjoy it, If you intend to use the song any other way, YOU MUST DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, Publicdomain4u doesn’t grant any rights in the songs except an mp3 download for you to enjoy.
