Harlem Rhythm

Alternative Song Title(s): 

This was composed for Ellington's film "Symphony In Black". It's part of three songs within the movement entitled "A Triangle". Normally, when track has three parts that are considered independent compositions, that would be a medley. However, in this case, Ellington is following more in the European tradition of having movements within a composition that should be considered not only different tracks upon recording, but different 'songs'. -JS
