"It don't mean a thing..." sheetmusic

Postby xocd » Sun Apr 30, 2017 2:10 pm

Looking for an accordion arrangement for Duke Ellington's "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing". Something along the lines of these two videos:

Egle Bartkeviciute playing a Frank Marocco arrangement

Uwe Steger, unknown arrangement

Neither of the two books of Frank Marocco's Jazz arrangements from Carisch has it (Vol 1 and Vol. 2).

I have found a possible candidate: Transcription by Schwarzien Ralf, (one can see the first and last pages by clicking on the images in that page).

Can you suggest a source?

Thanks,

Musicnotes.com has 26 arrangements, and sheetmusic direct.com has 28 - none specifically for accordion but that should get you started.

There is a version in the Jazz Accordion Songbook by Pete Lee.

Thanks, I am hoping to find an accordion-specific version. "Instant gratification takes too long."
