    Hi all,

    The jazz trio (guitar, db, drums) that I'm in will have its first ever wedding gig in a few months, so I like to know, from your experience, what tunes are good to play on that event. It doesn't necessarily have to be 100% jazz tunes, and I think alternating between swing, bossa, and whatever else will be good. Anyway, I'll just listen to what you DBers have to say.

    Thanks!
     
  2. Just to get things rolling:

    Standards:
    Misty
    It Had to Be You
    The Way You Look Tonight
    Fly Me To the Moon
    Satin Doll

    Bossa:
    Girl From Ipanema
    Desifinado
    So Nice (Summer Samba)
    Linus and Lucy?

    Pop:
    You are the Sunshine of My Life (hey, it's in the real book).
    Moondance
    I Feel Good (I Got You)

    Schlock:
    Anniversary Waltz
    Daddy's Little Girl

    Use your imagination and good judgement. Your guitarist might play the s**t out of "Four on Six," but does the bride's mother really want to hear that? (and she will be listening and adding comments, trust me).

    Blue Bossa?
    In a Sentimental Mood maybe?
