Hello, listees; I am having trouble finding the title of tune I can't get out of my head. It sounds like a Fats Waller composition, but it's not in my Waller collection. So how does it go? hummm humm - no that won't work. If I remember how to write chords, the tune follows the chord structure and pretty well defines the melody:
II V7 / I IV / III7 vi / iv / (first 4 bars)
Also, the tune starts on the second scale step.
Also re: ODJB and the 5's (Napoleon, etc.) My personal favorite is the Original Indiana Five - they had a LOT to say. Strangely not much recognition.
Charlie (hum - de - humm hummmm????) Coleman
