Saturday Night Seduction ~ “Jeeps Blues” ~ Duke Ellington

Recorded July 7, 1956 at the Newport Jazz Festival.

Composed by Duke Ellington & Johnny Hodges aka Jeep.

The song originally recorded in 1938 and first released by Johnny Hodges and His Orchestra but it wouldn’t even be recognized fully until Ellington At Newport released in 1957.

It would be the highlight of this concert and never ever again forgotten through jazz history.
