To counter the recent threads relating to all things hippety hoppety or repetative and pounding (banging choons?) I thought I'd start a thread about music with an element of class.

Add to it as you see fit. Or don't. Either's fine.

I have to say, this is taking off rather better than I had thought it would. Bravo to you all, my faith in the internet is restored.

Gloves off, tie straightened and feet ready to slide onto the dancefloor (well, the wooden floor in the sitting room at least)

Was in Ronnie Scotts a few years ago and this young cove came in and helped himself to the piano in the bar. He was rather good ... and then I realised it was Harry Connick Jr. Nobody bothered him. They just let him play.

Think Meade Lux Lewis might have done this but here is Tommy Dorsey's version

There's been as many covers of this song as there are stars in the sky. But Ella's has to be my favourite.

I'll add some Count Basie to the mix

I have a friend's birthday at the end of the month. It's loosely swing themed so she asked me to put together some music for the event. Unfortunately I got a bit carried away and she's now got 39 hours of music for the event.
