Take The A Train

On this track I indulge my usual inclination to do something rebellious when playing jazz standards. There's House, Techno and Elektro beats pushing it forward and some crazy distorted guitar. It's a short track so I hope it leaves you wanting more! The magical riff is repeated on several instruments throughout the track. It is, of course, a jazz standard by Billy Strayhorn that was the signature tune of the Duke Ellington orchestra. It first appeared in 1939 so it is a testament to its timeless quality that I want to play it, and you want to listen to it, today
