Happy Birthday Cootie Williams

Trumpeter Cootie was an integral part of Duke Ellington’s (his “Concerto For Cootie” is now better known as “Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me”) and Benny Goodman’s bands. He’s also notable for being the first artist to record Thelonious Monk’s “‘Round Midnight.”

“‘Round Midnight” by Cootie Williams (1944)
