Duke Ellington. It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)

"It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)" is a 1931 composition by Duke Ellington.

It is now accepted as a jazz standard, and jazz historian Gunther Schuller characterized it as "now legendary" and "a prophetic piece and a prophetic title." In 2008, Ellington’s 1932 recording of the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
