Bli-Blip (1942, Soundie)


Paul White and Marie Bryant performs "Bli-Blip." Music by Duke Ellington and his Orchestra.

I've never heard this Ellington piece before, and I'm rather surprised. The bass being recorded so strongly must be Jimmy Blanton and I'm surprised the piece hasn't been put on record - was the soundie produced while there was a recording ban?
