"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 dedicated 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!!!

Pray for all the peoples we lost in the war in Ukraine. So many lives lost.
Pray for Peace!!!

Great tune!
I’ve known and played it for years.
It’s kinda apropos for me, lately.
I still get around, but only for work (gigs).
I seem to be less social by each passing year.

Hi brook,
I really do appreciate your feedback and honesty.
We all are heading the same direction, and we have time against us, time just flies by.
We need to continue to show and guide our peoples by our example.
Keep up the good works, and say "I love you" more often.
Thanks again!!!
Respectfully,
Rene

(I love the guitar solo.)

It's a fine song. For me, no singer quite measures up to Al Hibbler singing it with Duke's band.
Hi archetype,
Al Hibber is the man, standing next to Duke!
Thanks for the excellent feedback!

Thank you for your support of Ukraine, my father was from Odessa. Ukraine's main port still stands, bravo!

Nice playing, nice singing, Rene. I'm right in the middle of the prime TDPRI demographic, and of late I don't get around much anymore, either!

Just a wonderful tune and you did a great job on it. Btw, Haggard and Jones did a cover of it. It's worth a listen.
Hi telekaster1999,
Thanks for a wonderful comment.
I will take a listen on their cover.
