Recorded at 2:00am on July 1, 2017 by my sweet new friends, Dominique and Ty Walker from Chicago at The Green Mill. The wonderfully musical and lyrical Eric Shneider ran the jam and invited me to play and then to sing a few tunes.

This is an exercise that takes you through all 12 keys, using a minor ii V i lick, that will help you to be able to hear an altered dominant extension...a triad, based on the flat five of the dominant chord.

Have You Met Miss Jones - Aimee's Solo Transcription

Have You Met Miss Jones - Aimee's Solo Transcription

Just playing and singing one of my favorite tunes!
Have You Met Miss Jones?" is a popular song that was written for the musical comedy, I'd Rather Be Right. The music was written by Richard Rodgers and the lyrics by Lorenz Hart. The song was published in 1937. In the musical the song is performed by characters Peggy Jones and Phil Barker. In the 1937 version these characters were played by Joy Hodges and Austin Marshall. The song's bridge, featuring key motion by major thirds, may have served as an inspiration to John Coltrane in the development of "Coltrane changes"
