Duke Ellington's "Jig Walk": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJfW9_P_IDY

A song Ellington wrote for a European musical in 1925 and never commercially recorded himself, though broadcasts exist from 1938 and 1949.

1938: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iT1SjBruyI

There's also a YouTube post from a Documents CD, "Black and White Piano," that claims to be Ellngton playing "Jig Walk," accompanied only by a drummer whose rolls sound like machine-gun fire. But it doesn't sound like Duke to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6XqzmcqZgg
