Music by Duke Ellington
Words by Bob Russell
Arranged by Henry Dehlinger

Notes

Never No Lament, written in 1940, later became Don’t Get Around Much Anymore when Bob Russell added lyrics in 1942. It is one of the most recorded and recognizable tunes in the American Songbook. Henry Dehlinger’s lighthearted arrangement presents a contrast of swing feels. In the first chorus, he treats the listener to a sultry barroom swing, and then quickens the pace to engage in a call and response chorus with a stride style bridge. The conclusion reiterates the sexy sultry feel as singer and pianist playfully pass phrases back and forth as if in conversation.
