I have a lead sheet for :Syncopated Shuffle by Ellington. It was recorded by the Harlem Footwarmers in
1929, but I have no access to a recording and it's not on RedHotJazz.com.
If someone could let me know what the tempo is that the Footwarmers use, I would appreciate it.

It's marked "moderato" but that covers a wealth of sins. What are the quarter notes per minute (even roughtly)
