Are there any playalong CD Book sets for the ballad Laura?
K. J. McElrath can:Can anyone answer what makes "Laura" harmonically distinctive compared to other jazz standards?
Be careful Hak, you're giving away your age. The answer to my harmony question is it is the only song that does not go to the tonic chord of the key it is written in until the very last note of the song. I wouldn't know that were it not for listening to the Peter Schickele radio program "Schickele Mix". He is another great musical comedian along with Spike Jones, and Victor Borge that many young people have never heard of. My favorite, of course, is Pete Barbuti. It is unfortunate that there are very few video recordings of his act available.
