"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

A great amazing violin part by the famous Ray Nance with the Duke Ellington's orchestra.
Admired by the fans of Duke as the trumpet soloist of "Take the "A" train",
Ray Nance was also the official and only one violonist of the orchestra,
as well vocalist and dancer.
A kind of "joker" similar as the "loco" of Perez Prado when it was necessary.
He also used to be sideman of Babs Gonzales's orchestra.
