Bert Firman's interesting cover of the Fletcher Henderson-Don Redman "Stampede": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByI1fB5EEvs

Pretty much follows the original arrangement but with more ensemble work and fewer solos. Best parts are Bill Barton'a tenor sax (lighter-toned but still as infectious as Coleham Hawkins' solo on the original) and the ragtimey piano by either Cecil Norman or Bert's brother John.

Duke Ellington's "Jig Walk": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJfW9_P_IDY

A song Ellington wrote for a European musical in 1925 and never commercially recorded himself, though broadcasts exist from 1938 and 1949.

1938: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iT1SjBruyI

There's also a YouTube post from a Documents CD, "Black and White Piano," that claims to be Ellngton playing "Jig Walk," accompanied only by a drummer whose rolls sound like machine-gun fire. But it doesn't sound like Duke to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6XqzmcqZgg

That solo is a piano duet, isn't it? - so probably Cecil Norman and John Firman.
