Caravan, written by Juan Tizol, performed by Haydn Huckle. Juan Tizol (31 December 1900 - 23 April 1984) was a Puerto Rican trombonist and composer. He was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and moved to the mainland United States in 1920. He worked with duke Ellington from 1929 to 1944 and it was during this period that he composed Caravan and "Perdido". After that he worked with the Harry James orchestra in California which allowed him to see his wife more often. In 1957 he was a guest on The Nat King Cole Show. He died in Inglewood, California on April 23, 1984.
Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Oscar Peterson are three of the greatest jaz musicians ever. I listen to the jazz greats all the time, the way to learn how to play jaz piano is to take piano lessons, learn the basic piano chords, play piano scores, practice piano, then practice piano some more!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this number.
