Smithsonian 'Jazz Composers'

An Exhibition about Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn

"This exhibition examines two jazz standards, each one its author’s most-recorded piece: Caravan, written in 1936 by Duke Ellington and Juan Tizol, and Take the "A" Train, composed in 1941 by Billy Strayhorn. Caravan debuted with a combo that included Ellington and was led by his clarinetist Barney Bigard, and "A" Train was premiered by the Duke Ellington Orchestra. In addition to many recordings made by Ellington, Caravan has been recorded by other musicians more than 1,100 times and "A" Train more than 900 times."
