Mood Indigo (1930)
Words and Music by Duke Ellington, Irving Mills, and Albany Bigard

From Wikipedia: The tune was composed for a radio broadcast in October 1930 and was originally titled "Dreamy Blues". It was "the first tune I ever wrote specially for microphone transmission," Ellington recalled. "The next day wads of mail came in raving about the new tune, so Irving Mills put a lyric to it." Renamed "Mood Indigo", it became a jazz standard.

Given a laid back treatment.... listen for the Paramount doing a quasi- Hammond B3 section near the finish.
