    I'd go for Yarbird Suite based on those recordings, but wow, the colorful chord changes in On Green Dolphin Street are very interesting.
    Technique, theory and fun, fun, fun. I love playing, studying and sharing MUSIC.

    I play Yardbird most often....Green Dolphin is OK, interesting for the change of groove from swing to latin....There Will Never Be Another You, nice changes, but I'm not a Chet Baker fan.

    Any are OK by me, but I'd like to see some more players involved.

    All great tunes. And I LOVE me some Joe Pass--arguably the best chord melody jazz guitarist ever. But "On Green Dolphin Street" is my favorite of the three. My favorite is Miles Davis's recording of it.

    That said, "Another You" would be just fine.

    Reminds me:
    Did you hear about the farmer who piped music to his sheep pen? When it played "There Will Never be Another You", his prize ram killed himself. (Thank you--I'm here all week. Remember to tip your waitress.)

    I voted for "...Another You" because of Don Stiernberg's version which was one of the first songs to catch my ear about a year ago when I started becoming interested in jazz mando.



    I can't wait to learn some from Don at the 2018 Alan Bibey camp in August!

    I really enjoyed that Joe Pass video - gives me chord melody aspirations.

    Joe Pass sounds great acoustic.

    No, David. Thirteen decided on "There Will Never Be Another You". Ten chose something else.
