In the wee small hours of the morning
A nice waltz.
A la suite de Jean
From Edouard Ferlet's wonderful album Think Bach, in wich he doesn't play Bach but play with Bach. It's based on the famous Prelude from the 1rst cello suite. The theme is really beautiful, and it's followed by a free-improvisation. You can hear another improvisation in this video.
I love this ballad, and I love Stan Getz's version :
Here's That Rainy Day - Bb - Eb
Leadsheet - Bb - Eb
Theme and solo, from his wonderfu 2015 album The Now.
Gigi Gryce : Social Call
I live this Gigi Gryce song, sweet melody, inspiring harmonics, and beautiful lyrics by Jon Hendricks. This transcription is based on the instrumental version from the 1955 album When Farmer Meets Gryce.
From the amazing 2011 album of this supergroups (Joshua Redman, Aaron Parks, Matt Penman, Eric Harland).
Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh
Topsy - only solos
From his fantastic piano solo recording, Evolution (2004)
Dolce. Theme, from Bailador (2010)
From his great duet album with Ben Wendel.
Try To Catch Me
Nice tune, alternating an atonal riff and a fun latin-feel part !
Teddy Wilson & Lester Young
Piano stride is hard but so much fun. I love the 1956 Pres and Teddy album (but who doesn't ?), and most of all Louise.
Louise 1 (only Teddy Wilson's solo)
Louise 2 (with Pres's theme)
