So today as I was driving in to work, an instrumental song came on the radio, and I said to myself, "Hey, that sounds like Duke Ellington".
After the song was over, the announcer identified it as Duke Ellington's theme song, "Take the A Train".
I felt so cool.
Now, it may be that I had heard the song before; I have a Duke Ellington album, though I haven't listened to it for a while. Even so, I feel cool that I am increasing my ability to recognize jazz.
