    Is there a chart for this anywhere? One of my brother's old friends (James Everett) recorded a really cool version of this tune. I did a bit of checking and it seems to be a fairly popular song (Bill Evans has apparently recorded this many times with different bassists) but I can't find it in any of my books.

    This wouldn't be a hard one to take off, there's a nice version on INTERPLAY (Bill Evans quintet).

    I'd agree that the best thing would be to lift this one. If you do decide to, I'd be happy to look over what you get, just email it to me. I've played this tune many times over the years. One recording of the tune I think you'd like is on Mulgrew Miller's Time and Again. Peter Washington plays the melody (except the bridge) and he's recorded extremely clearly. His bass lines also clearly state the changes, and he plays the melody really almost as you would see it in a fake book, especially on the first A, then varies it a bit. Mulgrew plays the bridge pretty straight up too. And you just can't go wrong with Mulgrew Miller.

    Plus, there are a multitude of things that are worse than having a rekkid with both Peter Washington and Mulgrew Miller on them. Swingin'...
