    We looked at These Foolish Things in Mar 2014 and at I'll Remember April in Apr 2014 and again in Jun 2016, so ...

    Our standard for May 2018 will be Cole Porter's Love for Sale (1930).

    Background:
    Jazz Standards Songs and Instrumentals (Love for Sale)

    Oh, just seen this. I'd forgotten it was today. Goody. I'm aware of the song, of course, but never really looked at it musically before.

    goes off to research new tune, never played it before, very exciting

    (edit)

    Right, nice. I'm going to like this one. I hear extensions, which means we might be able to use some of the triad stuff on it. And blues, naturally.

    (edit #2)

    God, it's HUGE!

    Curious which chart you are using - my Real Book doesn't have it (V6). I found what looks to be an earlier chart (#222).

    Thanks.

    I got the tune from the Jazz Standards Real Book index, and checked it against recordings. The chart came from a combination of recordings and backing tracks because I didn't like the RB version which starts off EbM7 - Bbm/M7 and has some other oddities.

    Early... you must be going on your holidays... :-)

    Very good as usual, M-ster. You're one of the unsung heroes of this place and it should be recognised. No bull, no excuses, no messing, no overposting like me, just straight in and do it really well every time. And you're not a pro (as far as I know).

    Well done, Sir! When's the album coming out?

    End of the school year--busy!

    I don't really like the song either, tough to get motivated...

    ABOUT TIME TOO

    DON'T LIKE THE SONG?


    (I don't like the words, to be honest. Nothing prudish, I just find the subject a bit gutty, even if it's only a show song. But the tune's okay and it's good for improv. Blues, nice 2-5's etc.)

    Not too busy, I hope, bad for the health :-)

    best one is the one he’ll do next

    I'm just here for the easy playing. If it's in Db, put it in C. If it's any faster than 120, forget it.

    Couple of weeks ago I listened to available submissions and concluded there must be something inherently wrong with this tune. Did not analyse it, but I remember impression of nobody, including Miles, Gadd ... could make it really work. Tim Lerch was probably closest, but even he had to use many tricks and smokescreens, if I remember correctly.

    That was about the head of it.

    Improvising/ blowing over changes is different story. Many did it well.

    I'll check Ella's version.

    What Bill Evans and Miles did in playing the tune and also Miles solo is incredible. How he modifies the tune melody slightly (not embellishments) is unbelievable, staying on Bb in second and third 'A' how can one figure this out... Also the mood is so in harmony, I mean Bill Evans and Miles.
