Maybe you could try West Coast Blues? That tunes got a nice little melody to it.

When the little sensation gets in your way
Not one ambition whisperin' over your shoulder

Oh well I just got around to reading this beast and I was really impressed. Thats a lot of stuff in there, and like those other guys were saying, this could have flown over non-jazzer's heads. So that idea about some beginner jazz is a great idea as well. Id love to see that up and get more people into jazz.

And Elven, I loved all of those recordings you had on there. I listened to them all and I was very impressed, good job man!

EDIT: 1000 posts!!! (most of them being in the vocal thread )

Blue Monk! Do that, I've just learned the basic sax part, so it would be cool to see something on that.

What we need to do is after making this lesson, someone make a baking track and post it for people to practice over.

I'll do this one right now :P

EDIT: Heres the backing track for it, I played through the progression twice, with guitar and bass.

This is great,,I already have it in my fakebook,,,but im sure most everyone else on this site doesnt have one,,,so this a great resource for them,,,,and for the people who wanted a simpler type of song in this type of vein maybe for one of the next ones you could do Minor Swing,,,,thats really easy and has a pretty simple head too,,,but I think if you were going to go the simpler route have that be something like a beginner/intermediate standard of the month and still have the more challenging stuff,,,,even though Blue Bossa isnt terribly hard,,,maybe next time do something like Dexterity by Charlie Parker,,,,that'll get them in shape fast,,,

I would definitely suggest Autumn in New York, Countdown, or Misty for the next months Standard.

Better hurry up if you're gonna do one for this month.

I recommend Autumn Leaves, EVERYBODY loves that song. Or Boplicity, So What, Night in Tunisia (that'd be interesting for improv, because of the progression).
