Don't Get Around Much Anymore, 1940, Duke Ellington

"Don't Get Around Much Anymore" is a jazz standard written by composer Duke Ellington.

The song was originally entitled "Never No Lament" and was first recorded by Duke Ellington and his orchestra on May 4, 1940. "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" quickly became a hit after Bob Russell wrote its lyrics in 1942.

This song is for all our elders, as we honor their lives and contributions to our culture and heritage. May we find the courage and patience to love and honor all of their being, as they continue to inspire and love us!!!
