Fine and mellow (Billie Holiday)

There are some harmonic changes in the last 4 bars of this Billie Holiday’s classic blues to make the melody a bit more challenging for a singer with ears. After the first 2 chorusses there is plenty of room for several soloists followed by a big band tutti.

To get an impression listen to the computer-version sung by Marlou Vriens.

Level: intermediate (1st trp goes up to written D).
