Switzerland, 1959


Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn credited, in 1953, with composing the jazz standard "Satin Doll." Though it's unclear if perhaps Strayhorn alone wrote it.

Some time after its instrumental version became a hit, Johnny Mercer wrote lyrics. Legend Ella Fitzgerald, who had a relatively pop sound, would go on to record it herself -- which is perhaps strange due to its unconventional chord progression.

See if you can pick out the progression, also known as the Montgomery-Ward bridge: Vm7, I7, IV, IV, VIm7, II7, IIm7, V7.

Please share your favorite videos with your friends and colleagues

That's how we grow.
