The video above is a sample of my solo version of "Caravan".  It, as well as other stripped down versions of Ellington classics, will be the theme of my upcoming concert "The Intimate Ellington".  I'm thrilled about the music and the band which will feature:

Chuck Redd- Vibes

Brad Linde- Saxophone

Josh Walker- Guitar

Regan Brough- Bass
