In 1953 the Duke and long-time collaborator Billy Strayhorn got together once more to produce “Satin Doll.” It would soon after become a jazz standard, which Ellington would often use to close his band's concerts. Ella Fitzgerald, The Gaylords and Frank Sinatra would heighten its fame with their own pop covers.

The tune features the “dominant cadence” (also known as the ii-V-I turnaround). Although this chord progression shows up in a variety of genres, it is particularly native to jazz.
