Them There Eyes

Postby justjack » Tue Feb 17, 2004 5:27 am

I've been having a lot of fun with the rhythm on this tune, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of an online source for the melody. Any rendition is fine.

Thanks, as always,
Jack.

Hey Jack, you might want to try the vitaminC music download site. They have Serge Krief's version that is great! I can email it to you, but I'm not exactly sure how to do it ( when it comes to computers, I'm as useful as a football bat)

I'm listening to it right now (well, Chez Jacquet, actually)...they seem to have quite a bit of his stuff for download, in fact. This is just audio, though, right? Or am missing some section of the site with charts? Either way, thanks much for the suggestion-it makes being at work that much easier!

Glad to hear you found it! It's just audio and I'm almost certain there aren't any charts. Great recordings though.

I'm an idiot. I've had it here all along: The Jazz Bible Fake Book Series: The Swing Era. Anyone who's looking for decent charts for standards should check this series out; it's arranged so you can see both the original changes and more modern subs at the same time, all the sections are clearly marked (A, B, etc.) and they only run about $15 to $20 per 200 tunes. To top it off, the author's grandmother helped him pick out the tunes. Good times.

That's a fake book I haven't hear of, Jack; do you know a source for it?
What about a source for the Astuces book that you mentioned elsewhere?

Thanks,
Charlie

The Astuces book you can find right here, I think, in English translation. Check the shop section of the site, it's called Secrets of Gypsy Jazz Guitar, or something similar. The other one is a Hal Leonard book that you can probably find on amazon.com. Vol one (Ragtime & Early Jazz) is also well worth checking out.

Wiseguy, eh? Actually, I'd love to find a transcription of it somewhere. Pretty good indeed!
