This intermediate jazz work gets students working on inner voice leading in the right hand, and reading clef changes, as the melody stays in the middle of the piano. More advanced students can extend and improvise on this piece using the C blues scale. The melody is incredibly catchy, with a slight Cab Calloway/Brian Setzer sound, and will delight audiences anytime and anyplace!
Key: C minor
Mood: cool, swinging, sophisticated
