About The Mooche

"The Mooche" is an American jazz song, composed in 1928 by Duke Ellington and Irving Mills. The song is in the so-called "jungle style" and includes the clarinet and muted trumpet typical of Ellington's work. James "Bubber" Miley was among the musicians that recorded the original version of the song. The song is played in C minor. In 1933 Ellington explained that the title referred to 'a certain lazy gait peculiar to some of the folk of Harlem'.
