I love this girls voice and guitar work. Any of you have a good sheet for this one? It's not in the firehouse, and I can't get a few changes.

Albanie Falletta is her name, I mis-typed in the heading.

From your chord chart Marco. Am I close on the melody?

davidcava - Posted - 02/15/2019:  11:06:18


Marco, where did you get that chart? I remember someone posted these charts here before, but I forget where they live on the net. I think maybe John, from New Orleans, posted these type of charts.

I hadn't checked in in a while and was real happy to see this. Was fortunate to meet and play/sing with Albanie as part of Alex Owen's "Messy Cookers" band down in NOLA a few years ago. A marvelous guitarist & singer with great ears...another unique talent to carry the jazz torch forward. Just another inspiring aspect of Nawlins - gotta appreciate the concentration of young jazz cats & kittens in one place!!

What I would have given to hear you all together Bob. You're the Man. Is my melody right on this song Bob? I was basing it after Albanie's vocal. I think I'm close, but I didn't have a sheet.

I love these chords that Marco posted, and went from there.

I love Albanie's rendition of this tune! Another version I'm also fond of is by Wynton Marsalis youtu.be/KSp7SCEV_qs

I love Wynton.....man...they are ripping it up!

The chord chart comes from the Anthologie des Grilles de Jazz.  jazzbanjo.nl/files/Anthologie-...5jg22.pdf

Thanks Joe! That's exactly what I was looking for. Great Charts.

CGDA - Posted - 02/17/2019:  09:43:57


David, your melodic line is correct to my ear. I also love your chords and inversions. I feel a particular sound from your banjo: is it muted? The score I've sent you is from the "Grilles de Jazz". Please, let me know if you need something else not present in that book. I have other different sources that i can send you.



Marco

Thanks Joeseph for the link to the Anthologie des Grilles de Jazz, commonly called, the ''French Book,'' I've just downloaded the PDF.



The French Book's highly regarded as gospel, and you can always depend on finding reliable, correct chord charts.



David, you recently posted a fine tutorial on ''Black And Blue'' using ''thefirehousefivefakebook'' sheet music to work off. If you would have had access to The French Book at that time, you would have seen an extra couple of chords in there ...... which's how I remember playing it with jazz bands, how come? ...... 'cause they all used to use ''The French Book''!. .... Don.



Here's a snap of ''Black And Blue'' from the ''French Book'' ......  ps ....  to enlarge, right click, then left click 2 down, ''open in new window,''

Hi David thanks for the link. i really enjoyed her singing.
Also thanks to Joe ,

Jan

Thanks Marco, I don't think I'm right on with melody, but I'll keep working on it. I do have the banjo muted, and I would say it takes 3/4 of the volume off.....maybe more. I'll take up your offer on your other charts if I can't find some, I appreciate that.

Thanks Don, I'll run those chords over that song and see what comes out. I have a question for you Don, an example being this french book. Can you play all these songs in that book off the top of your head? It seems lately I can't remember a lot of songs I've already learned. I know I'm not out playing them every weekend in a band situation, and usually learn a song, put it on tape, and then move on. But a lot of them don't stick in my brain. Any suggestions on song memory technique?

Dave, fair suck of the sav, although I've got lots of tunes tucked away in my memory bank, there's no way in the world, that I know all those tunes in The French Book!, may be Eddy does!.  smiley



As far as remembering chords in tunes Dave, I'll probably state the obvious, but it works for me ....... your ears play a huge part in memory of the melody line, and the chords, eg. Sweet Georgia Brown ..... my ears tell me, usually the key F, follows the cycle of 5th's, goes to relative minor near the end.  Any tune that's straight forward I don't dwell on too much, because my ears will always get me through it OK, eg, Bill Bailey .... but when a tunes outside the norm in parts, the trick is to memorise  those parts, and you'll be on the right track at retaining them in your memory bank. ..... Don.



Found the dots for ''What A Little Moonlight Can Do'' .......   ps. to enlarge right click, then left click ''open in new window'' 2 down.

fair suck of the sav...... I wish I knew what that meant! Thanks for the sheet Don, I'll work on it for sure.

Thanks for your thoughts on memory......and, I surely would have thought that you may know all those songs!

I'll keep working,
Thanks again Don
