(Single Review): Black History Month Day 15 MTC Getting Educated “Take The A Train” by DUKE ELLINGTON

On this day in 1941, Billy Strayhorn simply wanted directions for how to get to Duke Ellington’s house.  Duke responded to Billy, “Take The A Train”, and Billy immediately wrote the lyrics while Duke composed and recorded this song.  The song “Take The A Train” is classified as one of the “100 Most Important Songs of the 20th Century” by NPR Radio, and it’s plain to see why.  The lyrics are incredible, the scat singing is out of this world, and this song, along with “In a Sentimental Mood” by Duke Ellington was the peak of the Harlem Renaissance.  The Harlem Renaissance culture is something that I need to educate myself more on, and Duke Ellington effortlessly blended big band, swing, and jazz music to make some of the greatest music in the history of modern humankind.  Grab your partner and cut a rug with “Take The A Train” by Duke Ellington.
