Best Jazz

#1

I’m loving the beautifullest song thread. I hope we can get a collection of great jazz songs here.
I’ll start with Birdland, which is probably too famous for its own good, but certainly one of the all-time bestestes of all time.

[Edit: I’m building a playlist with the songs from this thread. I don’t know how long it will take me or how far I will get, but it is here: youtube.com/view_play_list?p … 968267E871]

yes
I’m daddy-o coolin’
This will keep me busy for a long time. I used to have the music to Blue Rondo a la Turk transcribed for classical guitar but someone who will not be mentioned here threw it away. That is not something that is easily forgiven.

Yes. I worked on it for a long time just to get the first part down and then went on to other things with the intention of coming back to it later.
Now I’ve got a couple of books with jazz scales and progressions and stuff. Some day, I’ll work on them.
