This classic jazz standard by Turner Layton and Henry Creamer is a favorite of many. James L. King III uses this piece to introduce the concepts of lead sheets. 6 complete realizations are included, from simple single note left hand accompaniments to professional extended chords used by pianists such as Bill Evans. The realizations are in progressive order, and were designed for students from early intermediate to late intermediate levels. Any of the realizations, especially the later ones can be used as recital pieces. The chorus can also be played several times with progressively difficult realizations as a theme and variations.
Key: C major
