I love this tune and here is a short take, playing around with the melody and improvise around the harmony just having fun.

Apart from the original with modern jazz quartet have a listen to the Swedish tenorman Roland Keijser’s version from the record Back home blues, a fantastic record if you can find it...and also Grant Greens version with Joe Henderson is fantastic!

Sounding good as always Roger, nice song too. :)

Your reed sounded like it was not completely broken in yet, but with a nice texture in the sound.
Thanks man! Actually the reed was by the very end of its lifespan so I threw it away right after the recording. It was starting to shut down during the recording, that may be what you hear?

If you like "Django", check out Ron Carter's rendition on "Blues Farm" (CTI 1973). Absolutely gorgeous.

Nice work. I always thought that the tune would be a wonderful vehicle for saxophone.

Something in the response in the low register, but that can indeed also come from an old reed (I always play my reeds way too long!).
