Indigo is more than a color, it’s a mood thanks to Duke Ellington. He put it to song and legion are the musicians who have covered this jazz standard.
As I explored Virtual Harlem in search of Mood Indigo, I listened to Billie, Sarah, Ella and Nina sing it.
You ain’t never been blue, no, no, no child
You ain’t never been blue
Till you’ve had that mood indigo
That feeling goes stealing, right down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh, go along blues
Special thanks to Mocksoup Graves for creating a makeup for Mood Indigo.
