    Default Arrangement of an Estonian children’s song

    This is a song “Kus on minu koduke” (Where is my home) from my childhood. Also today, this is one of these songs many Estonian children start learning music with, because the melody is very simple and easy to remember. It's a song about home and the good things that are there
    This is my jazz arrangement of that song:

    Sounds great. I love 'simple melodies' that can be fleshed out a little, just as you have done here.

    Thank you! The same love here. There is something delightful about these simple child-like melodies. They have given birth to great jazz themes (Bye Bye Blackbird is the first thing I remember right away) or why not the famous Baroque or Classical variation works from the great masters.
