Mood Indigo

Margaret Mfume ~ January 18, 2011

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.

      Did you happen to find my indigo bag? I was accosted outside the club and thought he might have discarded it after absconding with my valuables within.

      oh my…

      who would have guessed that beneath the scaly exterior there lurked a pret-a-porter spirit waiting to find expression?
