Soundie: Jam Session

Picture of Duke Ellington

Today's Soundie is called Jam Session and is led by the legendary Duke Ellington. As the band arrives one by one to the Harlem Cats CafĂ©, they just can't resist joining in on a rendition of "C-Jam Blues".  Some of the other iconic musicians included in this Soundie from 1942 are: Barney Bigard, Sonny Greer, Ray Nance, Joe 'Tricky Sam' Nanton, Rex Stewart, and Ben Webster.  Enjoy!
