Do Nothing till You Hear from Me (Allegro) // Duke Ellington | Piano Sheet Music for Ballet Classes (PDF)
“Do Nothing till You Hear from Me” is a song with music by Duke Ellington and lyrics by Bob Russell. It originated as a 1940 instrumental (“Concerto for Cootie”) that was designed to highlight the playing of Ellington’s lead trumpeter, Cootie Williams. Russell’s words were added later. In 1944, Ellington’s own recording of the song was a number one hit R&B chart for eight non-consecutive weeks and number six on the pop chart.
Other recordings to reach the Billboard charts in 1944 were by Woody Herman and by Stan Kenton.
In this jazzy solo piano version it’s arranged for a ballet class “Allegro” exercise and recorded by Peter James on his album “Music for Ballet Class – MORE Songs from the 1940s”
