Two of the greatest jazz composers were Duke Ellington (1899-1974) and Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967). This exhibition examines two of their most ubiquitous pieces -- "Caravan" (1936) composed by Ellington and Juan Tizol, and "Take the 'A' Train" (1941) composed by Strayhorn -- through documents from the museum's Archives Center and related audio and video recordings.
