Does anyone know who sings the song on the new polaroid one commerical - 'it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing' - I know its a remix of the old version. I would love to know who sings it. Thanks!

From Polaroid's support web site Q&A:
The song you hear in the Polaroid One 'Swing' commercial is called Doo Uap, Doo Uap, Doo Uap, by the Italian musical duo Gabin. The song is featured on their self-titled debut CD, which was released in 2002 by the Astralwerks label.

I've been looking for it too. If you find it please let me know. Let me know if if you find out who the artist is. I believe it was from the Kodak commercial.

Hey y'all.. thanks so much. You're quite awesome!
> It's at least on this compilation 'Hotel Costes 5'... here's a bit of a review of the song:
> Gabin's 'Doo Uap, Doo Uap, Doo Uap' crosses this boundary between house and swing expertly, utilising Duke Ellington's 'It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)' with killer precision.
> Here's the artist's complete album too:

I think it's Ella Fitzgerald. I'm a HUGE Ella fan myself and am trying to track down who did that remix myself!
Cheers!

The song you hear in the Polaroid One 'Swing' commercial is called Doo Uap, Doo Uap, Doo Uap, by the Italian musical duo Gabin. The song is featured on their self-titled debut CD, which was released in 2002 by the Astralwerks label.
The following is from an online review by Rolling Stone:

'On their debut, Max Bottini and Filippo Clary serve up a dozen moody grooves perfect for a post-clubbing nightcap . . . Doo Uap, Doo Uap, Doo Uap, a loop from Duke Ellington's It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) fitted to a house beat, is a slinky dance-pop gem that scored the duo a Top Five hit in their native Italy . . . Rife with jazzy textures and urban sophistication, Gabin is an ideal soundtrack for cappuccino kids and chill-out rooms.'

The song is called 'Aint got a Thing' and was originally recorded by Duke Ellington. The band Gabin, under Astrakwerks Records, re-recorded the music as 'Don't mean a thing' which is the version in the Polaroid commercial. It was an existing mix.
