Just Squeeze Me (But Don't Tease Me) - Duke Ellington & Johnny Hodges

video

Heard on Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges's album "Side by Side", recorded on August 1958 in Nola Studios, New York City and February 1959 in Columbia Studios, New York, released in 1959.

While released under both names, Hodges remains in the fore, as Ellington only appears on three of the album's tracks, while Billy Strayhorn sits in on the remaining.
