Song Of The Day – 9/5/11

Song Of The Day – “Diga Diga Doo” by The Harlem Footwarmers

On this record, they were billed as the Harlem Footwarmers. In reality they were The Duke Ellington Orchestra. Whatever you called them in 1928, the fact remains they were the hottest band around featuring the great Barney Bigard on clarinet, Jabbo Smith on trumpet and Johnny Hodges on saxophone. Diga Diga this!
