The thread title is from an article by a jazz musician I read in the NY Times several years ago (can't remember who, sorry). His point was that the same old tunes kept getting requested over and over again. Lately I've been thinking of tunes that are repeatedly called at jams and wonder what others think of playing them over and over. Some I really dislike, others I like but am tired of playing so much, and still others I can play forever no matter how many times they are called. Some examples: Really dislike playing at all: Footprints (number one for me to put to rest, maybe forever) Little Sunflower Speak No Evil So What / Impressions Red Clay Fly Me To The Moon It Don't Mean a Thing Route 66 Girl from Ipanema Like but need a rest: All The Things Just Friends Lullaby of Birdland Summertime Stolen Moments All Blues Take the A Train Blue Bossa Often repeated but I would play repeatedly: About a ton of other blues heads Out of Nowhere All the other Jobim tunes Black Orpheus Stella Body and Soul I realize many of the tunes I dislike have been discussed in this forum. I'm not pointing any fingers, just thinking out loud. My list is much longer in each category. These are just examples.
