Mood Indigo
Duke Ellington; Louis Armstrong Lyrics

Now you have been blue, yes but you ain't been blue,
Till you've had that mood indigo

Yes you have been blue
But not until you've had that mood indigo

Hold on to your shoes, baby 'cause it is

Now I've seen the cries
Ooh you have been blue, yes
Not till you have the mood indigo

Whoa there's no trumpet blowing that freaky horn

I see the cries, yeah
Oh baby yes, mm

Just a few examples of Duke playing his own song.

Fuck you.

This style makes me wish I'd been born earlier. I can just see myself listening to this in some smoky, after hour joint in Harlem or Beale Street in Memphis.

The intro is another variation on the four ascending chords Ellington used on many recordings of MI. He liked to play them double time, kinda up-tempo, then throw the brakes on in the first bar. And actually, the earliest recordings of MI were up-tempo, swing style, not the slow delivery we've come to associate with the tune.


What is it about Jazz that makes able to define human emotion better than any other music...

I have to agree with its ability.


its spontaneous it gets a better look into how a person is at that very time more than anything else
