With a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6), she was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. more »

Baby, take me down to Duke's Place
Wildest box in town is Duke's Place
Love that piano sound in Duke's Place

Saxes do their tricks in Duke's Place
Fellas swing their chicks in Duke's Place
Come on, get your kicks in Duke's Place

You find yourself a seat, and when you want to eat
You look around and yell, ?Waiter?
You fill your cup chock full of dreams and drink it up
You're jetting along with your girlie

It's after three o'clock, but baby, it's early
If you've never been to Duke's Place
Take your tootsies into Duke's Place
Life is in a spin in Duke's Place

Baby, take me down to Duke's Place
Wildest box in town is Duke's Place
Love that piano sound in Duke's Place

Saxes do their tricks in Duke's Place
Fellas swing their chicks in Duke's Place
Come on, get your kicks in Duke's Place
