I can't find it so far. 
I have ruled out one of the 1941 versions, and one of the 1934 versions.

I saw your first post about it on youtube.

Its a very understated version, kind of quiet and relaxed. The recording sounds like an older recording, and he's playing in an older piano style too, he plays it differently later in his career.

Where did you find the recording originally?

I just checked the version from the album "Indigos", its not that one, but it is a good example of a more modern version of the song.

I was just reading about two versions he recorded on May 14 1941, the description of the first one sounds like your recording.

Your youtube video does sound like a CD.
There's quite a few Ellington CD collections out there, I would try "The Chronological Series" first. I'll take a look around some tomorrow and see what I can find.
