Re: R1-9's to run on Duke Ellington Day

Posted by randyo on Wed Apr 22 15:47:19 2009, in response to R1-9's to run on Duke Ellington Day, posted by joe c on Wed Apr 22 10:21:02 2009.

For those of you who may not know the story behind the tune "Take the A Train," it was inspired by Duke Ellington's instructions to the co writer of the tune, Billy Strayhorn. When Billy Strayhorn wanted to know how to get to Duke Ellington's residence, Duke Ellington simply replied "Take the A Train" and a song title was born.
