My Music Monday
I do own some, including a few Duke Ellington cds. I do not own anything where he plays "Jeep's Blues".
The song was featured prominently in the movie American Hustle. I find it incredibly cool - and it could almost - almost - make me search out additional music like this.
If I drank scotch, it would be the type of song to kick back in a dimly lit room, nurse some hard liquor and just enjoy the mood.
In the movie, you can see Christian Bale's character get into the groove - and for good reason. Ellington and his orchestra pull off the song flawlessly. Since the movie opens with the song - and uses it again a short while later - it really sets the mood.
I'm diggin' it.
