On deck for the 10/21/18 MJJ are some great house band members: Paul Dietrich (tpt), Doug White (pno), John Schaffer (bs), and Matt Endres (bs). The featured tunes are a bossa and a blues (sort of). The bossa is “Journey to Recife” from Real Book I. It’s a fun tune to play with a catchy melody but I’m having some trouble with the harmonies. It’ll be interesting to consult the house band on some of the chords on this chart. The sort-of-blues is Horace Silver’s “Sister Sadie” from Real Book III. We’ve featured this one before a year or two ago, but I figure no one will complain if it shows up in the lineup again.
See you in a couple of weeks!
