Started working this one. Nice tune, but deceiving. I listened to the recording posted, and I checked allmusic for other versions -- it seems very under recorded among HS tunes. Sadly, his version is with what, to my mind, is one of his weakest bands. I do recommend checking out Ted Nash's cover. Quite nice.

At least the head is easy.:)

I find myself thinking of it in a slow 4 rather than 6/4. Kind of a slow shuffle, rather than a jazz waltz. I can see that bar 5 of the 2nd ending (F#m7 B7) is gonna trip me up.

This song is tough, all thouse sixes and nines and fourths in the melody to stay in tune. Pardon the background. I used BIAB to make a Jazz Waltz.

Feedback welcome.

I think your right Hak... it can really move along like a shuffle... I just got a backing track so I'll be working on mine and should post soon.

WOW phannah. That was superb. I loved it and I think your version will help me a lot when trying to figure out the tune (hated the sound on that Horace Silver version). I just need to get a background track for myself.

Alright. seein's how I called this bloody tune. I should post sooner rather that later.
This tune wasn't too easy. The head is a lot easier than Ceora but the changes are hard to keep a flow going. Anyway, here's my submission:

Hey Thanks guys, I wanted to represent since I called the tune. i busted out my recording gear to aid in the presentation. I too was surprised how good the quality of the recording came out. This process really help you get your sh*t together in a lot of different aspects... the tape don't lie.

madgrocer.. Good take. I hear the first two changes as either diminished or Maj/Minor kinda sound, I guess you can use Alt scale too. I didn't really hear that on your take. sound like your were playing dominant 7 type stuff. just a constructive criticism for future ref.

Looking forward to other versions.....

Uh, yeah, I will just keep my feeble playing out of it... I liked the [clears throat] at the end. Classic.

Seriously , where's the thread for 'B' players. I thought I was listening to Eric Alexander.

Yeah, no doubt! But, no worries - I'll post a take soon that will have you feeling *GREAT* about yourself, and redistribute the bell curve accordingly.

Seriously good take! Yikes!
Great job Phannah.
I never heard this tune before and the way you play it I'll catch you all :shock:next month
Hey Really people, the idea here is to take part.
I definitley don't want to keep you guys from posting. I was just trying to post the best take I could muster.
Believe it or not, this process will really help your playing, it has mine.
The more you stick your neck out, the better it feels when you get it chopped off :)
Believe me, I've had 30 years of getting my neck chopped off!

PH, could you elucidate this a bit? The more detail the better.

Also, the first chord for tenor is C7(b5 b9), so what I'm hearing (as I jam over BinaB) is f# a# c# e ..... that is, I'm hearing a f#7 chord with a c in the bass .... and this leads me to playing f# dominant licks .... which sound ok but aren't gettin it .....
