It Don't Mean a Thing - Various Artists

Legbamel Not-Pop

As a hint of what my new lens will celebrate, I’m including today a pile of different versions of It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got that Swing), including a decidedly weird one from Nina Simone. Naturally, I’ve got Ella Fitzgerald, because she owns the song, but you can also enjoy The Puppini Sisters, Django Reinhardt, Tony Bennett, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, among others. Now get swingin'.
