From Glenn Miller's Chattanooga Choo-Choo to Wynton Marsalis' Big Train, the everyday, ordinary sounds of trains have inspired some of the greatest jazz compositions of the 20th century. Railroads were a constant in American culture and deeply connected to the world of working musicians criss-crossing the country. In this installment of What Makes it Great? Rob Kapilow, the Kyle Athayde Dance Party, and special guest Underground examine and perform iconic jazz classics inspired by trains and composed by Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and Wynton Marsalis.
