    Actually Concerto for Cootie is the original title (as an instrumental to feature Cootie Williams' trumpet, as here); someone later wrote lyrics under the 'Do Nothing ...' title, which has become adopted as the standard name. Like a lot of Ellington tunes, I prefer it without words personally!

    The correct name of this song is: "Do Nothing 'Til You Hear From Me." End of story.

    I have been listening to Concerto to Cootie. I'm bad at putting precise titles to tunes, but there's an annoiuncer twice introducing the tune.

    awesomeness... i've been craving songs like this. Something with an older and more... sophisticated feel. And that noise grain just adds to everything!
