Film: "Jam Session," 1942

“C Jam Blues” is a Duke Ellington composition that the famous bandleader put together in 1942. Naturally it's in C and uses a blues form.

Barney Biggard, here playing the clarinet, is likely the author of the actual melody, but it remains the object of speculation, as the Duke is no longer with us.

Personnel:

Duke Ellington, piano
Rex Stuart, trumpet
Ben Webster, tenor sax
Joe Nanton, trombone
Barney Bigard, clarinet
Junior Raglin, bass
Sonny Greer, drums
