Caravan, Whiplash and Michel Petrucciani


Having recently watched Whiplash, which is an amazing film by the way, I thought I would bring Caravan to your attention. This is the song at the end of the film where the character Andrew Neiman gives his all time performance. Well, needless to say this song is an absolute classic: written by Duke Ellington in 1963 (click link). Having become an iconic Jazz standard it has been covered by a number of the greats, however, one of my favourite covers of it is by Michel Petrucciani.

If you haven’t seen Whiplash, here is the trailer:
