    Default October jazz tune of he month - Marie

    The winner this month is Marie. I'm using what Lester Young called "vanilla changes" (just essential changes). Feel free to make your own play along with fancier changes if you wish.

    That is a great song. I always think of Don Walzer's album.

    I almost always think of this version, after decades of playing in big bands:



    but the version with the Bunny Berigan trumpet solo is best:

    Another big band version, but pretty different from the Dorsey above. I saw Ray Charles with this band long ago, and this was the first tune he did at the piano (after one on sax). Great writing (Quincy Jones?), nice solos (Fathead Newman and Ray), and a mighty fine band.

    I hope you guys and gals don't mind me putting in a tg version. I had the sheet music for this in the key of F, and my tg is tuned CGDA. So for mando that would be the key of ? I also have the Bunny Berigan solo sheet music the key of F, but I can't read that fast!
