    Description

    Duke Ellington "Squat (Squatty Roo)" Handwritten Score. For the true Jazz fan, few vintage documents would make a more spectacular showpiece than a handwritten Duke Ellington chart. "Squatty Roo," a tune originally composed by key Ellington band member Johnny "Rabbit" Hodges, features notes regarding the passages to be played by Ellington band members Harry Carney (baritone saxophone) and Lawrence Brown (trombone). Most of Ellington's scores are housed in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., and this is one of the last to be made available to the public. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Ellington archivist J. Bradley Shigeta.
