PMB197: A Guide To Modern Caravaning (The Three Suns, East Bay Banjo Club, Ferrante & Teicher, Carpenters, Piero Umiliani, Vinnie Bell, Dinah Washington, Gene Rains, Les Paul, John Buzon Trio)

PMB197: A Guide To Modern CaravanningLong-term listeners of the show will be aware that the primary “show tune” at the Moonbase is, allegedly that Juan Tizol/Duke Ellington classic, Caravan. However, we rarely seem to actually play it on the show these days so we thought we could make up for this by dedicating a whole show to this minor masterpiece with a selection of arrangements for guitar, prepared piano, banjo, Moog – oh and even a vocal version.

We have over 200 more versions of Caravan in the Moonbase archives so the question is, dear listener, should we do another all-Caravan special?
