One of my favorite Duke Ellington songs is Rockin' in Rhythm. Here is a great version of Rockin' in Rhythm with Duke Ellington himself.
When I hear that riff at 0:20-0:25, I always think of the American folk song "Turkey in the Straw". Do you think the riff might be borrowed from "Turkey in the Straw"?
What do you think of Rockin' in Rhythm? Tell me.
