Name That Tune

Colin Aitchison sent me this ten minute video clip of Flip Phillip's 80th birthday bash. It has Flip on tenor, Phil Woods, alto, Randy Sandke, trumpet, Herb Ellis, guitar, Scott Hamilton, tenor, Carl Fontana, trombone, all jamming on ............
This is the question Colin poses. Name the tune before it gets to the end when all is revealed.
You have to listen closely to the changes played by Derek Smith on piano.
Clue - not a regular jamming tune.

  1. Closet I can get is All of Me, but I know it's not that it's just that it is possible to do the melody to All of Me over the sequence, and it has the same ending.

  2. Well I didn't get it until the end, like Angela I thought "All of me"

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
