Check out Bob Hunt's Duke Ellington Orchestra for a really good cover of the song.

Django Reinhardt also covered the tune, when Ellington's Orchestra visited Paris, and he recorded the tune with members of the Orchestra. Unfortunately, Django and Duke couldn't record together because they were on competing record labels.
