The Manhattan Minstrel Eddy Davis playing and singing a 1924 song written by Isham Jones & Gus Kahn. It was recorded by everybody including Satchmo, Merle Travis, Paul Whitman, Cliff Edwards, - you name 'em. Davis is playing on his Custom OME 12" head - 17 fret Tenor Banjo.

How is this for SONG OF THE MONTH ? Eddy (A Minstrel)

Great choice. Went to my first ever Django/gypsy jazz jam session last week and this tune was played but twice as fast! Mainly I sat and listened and smiled.

I love that song. Do you have a chord sheet for it?

That's a mighty tune and very well played by you David. Impressive.
I learned that at one point and then forgot it (like I do with a lot of tunes) so I'm back at it and hope to have something soon to share.

Nice renditions Eddy and David.

Here is the original sheet music for "I'll See You in My Dreams". digitalcollections.baylor.edu/...id/143331

I converted the ukulele tabs to chords symbols the other day, but I don't have them with me and plan add them here later. The chord progression in the original sheet music does not seem hugely different from that in the Anthologie des Grilles de Jazz, jazzbanjo.nl/files/Anthologie-...5jg22.pdf

Here's the chord progression in the chorus that I see from the original sheet music of "I’ll see you in my dream" from the url in the earlier posts. I haven't yet absorbed Eddy's to see what mistakes I made.

ABAC

A: Bb / Gm Dm / Bbm6 / Bbm6 / F / Abdim / Dm / F /
“See you..

B: D7 / Am D7 / D7 / D7 / G7 / C7 / C7 / C7 /
“Some one..”

A: Bb / Gm Dm / Bbm6 / Bbm6 / F / Fdim / Dm / Dm /
“Lips that…”

C: D7 / D7 /A A7 / Dm / Bb / Bbm6 C7 / (first repeat: F /Bbm6 C7/) (second repeat: F / F/)
“They will…”

Here's the dots out of the Django Fakebook ....... you can download this free off Google. ..... Don.

Ps.  If you want to enlarge this music, right click it, then left click ''Open Link In New Window'' ..... it'll then be a lot clearer.

Here's the live link Malarz ..... https://geosci.uchicago.edu/~archer/jazz_band/sheet/fakebook_django_2008.pdf

In some tunes, incudeing this one, you'll have the written sheet music, then followed by Django's very own improvised arrangements that you might want to try. .... Good luck, Don.
