    When Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean a Thing (If it Ain't Got that Swing)" was released on the Brunswick Records label on February 2, 1932, it was not the beginning of the Swing Era - Jazz fans would not see that for another three years. What the song did do was introduce the word "swing" into the popular lexicon, although Ellington was not really trying to do that. He said that "swing" was simply "Harlem for rhythm." The song was written in the summer of 1931. Ellington and his band had been on the road for the better part of the year and got a much needed break when they played four weeks in a row at the Lincoln Tavern in suburban Chicago. The Chicagoans in the band had a chance to see their wives and everyone else was able to stay in one place, at least for a little while. Still, they were back on the road again when the shows at the Lincoln Tavern ended and it was months before Ellington was able to get into a recording studio.
