    Any places on the net for chord changes for jazz tunes?

    I'm looking for the changes for, Frim Fram Sauce.

    I'm stuck.

    Thanks.

    Hmmmmm ...I've never heard of that song - who plays it and what album(s) is it on? It may be that it's a fairly standard progression with a composed head - often Jazz musicans will take the changes from a standard and add their own head - if somebody could actually hear it, it might be possible to identify it as say : Rhythm Changes in F ?

    Why do you say that, Bruce? Cause she's also pretty? Krall is a fantasic singer, as well as a great piano player. Take a listen to the way she comps and tell me you wouldn't kill to play with a piano player with touch like that. Then listen to her sing. Notice how much attention she pays to pitch, inflection, and phrasing.

    We all should play jazz so "Lite". :rolleyes:

    Actually it was just an ironic joke on the lyrics which stefeb posted a link for - read these and it might make more sense - or am I being too subtle? ;)

    I love Nat's stuff before he started singing!

    I'm not putting her in the Herbie catagory, and I must admit I'm surprised by the note for note solo thing. But I do think she's a much better musician than she gets credit for.

    Yeah - to be serious I think she's OK, but the sheer amount of coverage and interest is way out of proportion. So in the UK you cannot get away from pictures everywhere you look in Jazz publications and in every shop with a Jazz section - there are pictures everywhere and massive displays.

    I find it kind of depressing - do people really buy Jazz albums because they have a nice picture on the cover? :(

    She's pretty hot looking and the marketing folks are exploiting that angle in addition to her being able to play.

    Question Bruce, should Jazz CD's come with a plain white paper cover with regular type on them?

    I have some old footage off of BET On Jazz recorded onto a VHS tape. It has Diane doing "I Love Being Here With You". This was way before she became a household name in the modern Jazz world. Her performance is one of my favorites on the tape. I enjoy her vocal tone and while she's no Floyd Kramer on the piano, she gets the job done.

    The CD photos are definatley glamour shots, and have to be airbrushed. In person (or at least the shot on this tape) she is very attractive but she looks more like "The Pretty School Teacher" type, not the glamed up star that they portray her in the cd books. I guess a slick image really does help sell though. :rolleyes:

    That's what I was saying - you go into any record shop and the Jazz section is just full of images and displays - even if you really like her, you can only buy the CDs once! It's just too much - you feel like saying to the shop manager - there are other Jazz artists as well! ;)

    Well Bruce, maybe you should get tan and dress up in a speedo and your albums will sell better. :D :p
