Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: Duke Ellington – Jeep’s Blues

26 Jan

Duke EllingtonI’m jumping on the hipster wagon with this one.

I saw the movie,  American Hustle this weekend, and hearing just the beginning of this Duke Ellington tune in an opening scene, well, it was mesmerizing.  It softly led me to a place in my mind where I’d rather be this Sunday morning.  I love my work, but if I can replay Jeep’s Blue in my head today while there, I can imagine myself lingering over my cup of chai tea, blanket pulled up over my shoulders, eyes closed, mind drifting to a dreamy state of jazz bliss led by the one and only Duke.  And, how fitting, the song was recorded right here in Newport, Rhode Island in 1956.
