"Savoy Strut"

as performed by Johnny Hodges
Instrumentation: Ellington 7-pc
Level: 3
Notes: Savoy Strut is a major hidden gem from the swing era! Ellington starts the tune up with an unusually angular intro, which takes us to a winding but singable head. The soloists play over a beautiful and remarkable chord progression which also features some player-specific orchestration choices that take advantage of the unique sounds of his players. This is a fairly easy level 3. A must-have for any Ellington 7-piece ensemble!
