Caravan redux. It may not be what Juan Tizol, Duke Ellington or even the Ventures would have expected, but it was a fun tune to do. Here is my version of the tune, "Caravan." My wife, Lynn, is on bass and I'm on banjo and guitar.

Excellent.  I really like this tune and you do it well... I am not sure I can make out the difference from your last posting of it, but I do like it.  Thankx for doing it again.

What a great piece of music Bill.  I like the ending as it drifts away.

Thanks, Greg.  Trying to come up with a "different" ending is often a challenge for me.  I appreciate your comments!

Nice work. I play this on tenor and have always found it a haunting tune...
