Take The "A" Train

Lyrics

You must take the "A" train
To go to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem
If you miss the "A" train
You`ll find you missed the quickest way to Harlem

Changed the way we heard music !!! Dance the night away in regal style !!! Surely do miss the big bands. Mostly nothing but incoherent noise being produced today. I am amazed at what passes for music. We are lucky to have been here for this era of great musicians making great music.
Spankin' tune, baby! ;)
Wonderful!! ;)
haha wrong lyrics, this isn't St Louis blues
Great, concise, swinging release. This line- up one of best.
Interestingl y , Ellington's biggest commercial success, Take the A Train, was written by Billy Strayhorn. I saw the Duke Ellington ghost band in 1980 when I was in college, and Cootie Williams performed the trumpet solo. Incredible. Great track, a classic, never get tired of it.
Hurry, Hurry, Hurry, take the 'A' train
Just a classic, both in the original compostion and the great swinging arrangement by Duke and his imitators!
