Commentary: Creole Love Call by the Duke Ellington and his Orchestra features Adelaide Halls wordless vocals.
Duke Ellington recorded the song in October 1927 along with The Blues I Love To SIng and Chicago Stomp Down. The three songs were worldwide hits, launching both Duke Ellington and Adelaide Hall to mainstream success.
On December 4, 1927, Duke Ellington and his Orchestra started their residency at Harlems Cotton CLub in New York City. The revue show was called Rhythmania and featured Adelaide Hall singing Creole Love Call.
Duke Ellington was issued a copyright on the song in 1928. Joe King Oliver sued for payment of royalties and composer credit because the melody was the same as Kings 1923 recording of Camp Meeting Blues with his Creole Jazz Band. The lawsuit failed because King had propblems with his original paperwork which invalidated his copyright.
Duke Ellington was presented the melody from reedman Rudy jackson, who claimed it was his own composition. After the lawsuit, Ellington fired Jackson and replaced him with Barney Bigard.
