It Don’t Mean A Thing

My thanks to G.A. Miller who posted my recording of Ellington’s It Don’t Mean a Thing if It Ain’t Got That Swing, which is the opening song of the CD companion piece to my novel One Life or The Lives of Chester Knowles.

Chester – or is it the Phantom? I’m not sure myself – in one of his more philosophical rants, refers to the song on page 179.

The full album is now (hopefully) a playlist on Soundcloud, which you can download and listen to while you’re thumbing (or scrolling) through the pages of One Life and/or The Phantom Speaks. Or you can get a real, actual CD together with the books if you purchase through Bumba Books. Thanks to the great Mr. Miller, who has as sweet a country voice as you’ll find anywhere east of the Ozarks, and a sense of humor weirder than anything south of the Andromeda galaxy.
