Is there a term for this?

Newby nerdy question: From the original Minor Swing to Giniaux's (and everybody else's I've heard) version of Appel indirect to countless songs in between, there's an eight note/chord coda at the end of the song. You've all played it a jillion times. Let's say it's in A - you start at E, down to D#, then chromatic up to A and bob's yer uncle the song is done. Is there a term for that thing?

    Well, generically, I suppose you'd call it a 'tag', but I don't know if it has a name. It probably does.

    Some tags have names, so I suppose that one could. Funny story - A few years ago my brother did a gig in Mexico City - some kind of upscale party - I can't remember what it was. He did the "Shave and a Haircut" tag at the end of a song and it dropped a few jaws. Evidently it means something entirely different there... an Oedipal Epithet to put it politely.

    IIRC, on one of Bette Midlers old records from the seventies, maybe "In the Mood" she sings this phrase with the lyrics "Why don't we go somewhere and jive?"

    So if no other term for it shows up, I guess you could call it a "jive" ending...
    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    I think some people call it an 'Ellington ending' or a variation of that???

    I googled "Ellington ending" and found this...

    ..but the one shown there isn't the same one as Double Scotch was asking about.
