This online exhibition, from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, 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. Through brief biographies of the composers, primary source documents, and media clips, students will learn about the collaboration of these two great jazz composers and the process involved in writing and recording two of the most celebrated jazz pieces ever written.
