enough so you can vibe to it and jump in your seat. I like the melody of it.I feel like it has layers of them like one with the trumpet type of instrument, the piano, and the clarinet and cornet type instruments. It doesn't sound like this was a big band but I’m sure that it is. I think that this is my prefered one because out of all of his examples this is the one closest to the music I listen to now and that's a stretch. All of his other ones just sounds like old music that should be left in the past to me. My favorite technical piece from him is ‘ Sepia Panorama’. This one really smooth and everything blends together to make one melody in the intro, but then it splits off into two and it still blends beautifully. I like you can still hear the separation between the instruments but they sound all as one. Towards the middle the piano plays a solo and it fits absolutely perfect with the vibe of the song. I can see why he was so influential in Jazz, his music is really a piece of art. All in all, Duke Ellington was one of the most influential people in Jazz weather you like him or not. His talent was undeniable and he was truly amazing(even coming from a person who hates Jazz).
