    I'm compiling a list of popular classic slow lyrical dreamy pieces. I'll start the list and you please add more of this kind. From my list you can get a pretty good idea what pieces I'm interested in and NO - it's NOT 'The River Flows in You'.

    My start of the list:

    Love Story (Francis Lai)
    The Shadow of Your Smile
    Moon River
    Dream a Little Dream of Me
    Hello (Lionel Richie)
    ...

    Please go on and fill it up.

    Lays really well on guitar.

    Also FWIW that bass-line that Ron Carter is floating through is monstrously difficult.

    How about:

    - Tenderly

    - Moonlight In Vermont

    - What's New

    Particularly the versions by Johnny Smith with all of those close voicing chords.

    On topic: One of my many, many, many favorites from ECM Records is otherwise ”Kite Dance” by Jan Garbarek. Very impressionistic and pastoral guitar playing by Bill Frisell.
