Take the A Train

It's International Jazz Day today, and though I don't think of myself as a jazz fan, there's something incredibly exhilarating and actually revolutionary about the best of it. I remember committing grievous harm against "Take the A Train" in the school band thirty years ago; the song is much stronger than our puny efforts to defeat it, though, and will live on when we are all dust. Here's the classic film version from 1943, with vocals by Bettie Roché (who, naturally, did not get screen credit). Just give yourself three minutes to listen to it.

Lovely! I've got a fondness for Big Band music--picked up from my father who always played it in the car on the weekends.
