    Lovely! At these easier tempos, the melodicism of bebop is so evident. It isn't just 8th note licks at 250 bpm. Bebop was and is a very melodic form when played correctly.... which you do!

    Thanks Lawson. This tune features a wonderful melody indeed. Just playing the head is a joy in itself.

    Nice take and a great tune.

    Fun fact: the composer of Boplicity is listed as Cleo Henry, who was Miles Davis’ mum!

    Don’t know why Miles and Gil Evans did that.

    I did not know that. Thanks. I noticed that the changes for this tune seem to vary a bit ...

    By the way, the tune seems to be called "bebop lives"too! Any info on that?

    No I haven’t come across that. But I just googled it, and it looks as if that was the title used for a version with lyrics that Mark Murphy sang (he starts off wordless, then the lyrics come in eventually):

    I think there is sometimes a legal thing where if you write lyrics to an instrumental tune by someone else, you have to record/perform it with a different title.

    I have a CD by Carmen McRae where she sings a load of Monk tunes, but most of the titles have been changed at the insistence of the publisher (according to the CD booklet). So ‘Straight No Chaser’ is renamed as ‘Get It Straight’, for example.

    Gerry Mulligan did a nice re-make of the Birth of the Cool tunes, with Wallace Roney and Phil Woods taking the place of Miles and Lee Konitz. I think someone had to transcribe all the arrangements from the original records, as most of the charts had been lost over the years.

    Spot on, Lawson! The lyrical ease of Dutch Bopper's rendition is thoroughly engaging. Love it!
