Perdido is one of the simplest and most performed jazz tunes in the canon. This is Ellington's original arrangement from 1942, but transcribed from a 1959 recording featuring a faster tempo and an extended solo by Clark Terry on flugelhorn. The figures are simple and repetitious and easy to memorize, so the students' attention can be directed to the groove.

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"
