Classic Jazz tune from 1925 that is covered in all kinds of jazz settings from ragtime to modern jazz & lounge groups. I will especially focus on this song in the Gypsy Jazz style.
Here’s the melody and chord chart to get us started. There have been many, many interpretations of this melody throughout it’s history. This one, for our study purposes, will be a bit simpler rhythmically. It is roughly based on the famous whistling version of it that the American exhibition basketball team, “Harlem Globetrotters” use as their theme song. We will have an in-depth study of how to improvise over this tune below.
