amending this, to make it more grammatical and science fictiony: I, puny quims, croon

the maestro's surname was an Ellington tune - when preceded by the adjectival name of a dance popular at the time

inside the jazz sphere of the 1950s, the Q tune was played by leading Belgian saxophonist Bobby Jaspar. And outside and later, Q was producer for Michael Jackson
