No, I’m not afraid to admit that when I was younger I was not aware of the Ellington original, in fact so much so that the first time I heard Ellington’s version I was like “Hey that sounds like an older version of that Steely Dan tune.” O_o. Ah… youth. But alas, I saw the error of my ways, but actually that’s what this serious and this site is about: “Bridging the gap” between generations through this powerful medium of music.
