Jazz Standards - Vote Now!

Here’s a list of jazz standard lesson requests I have been sent. Please vote for the tunes you would like to see most of all, and also include other suggestions below if not included here.

For your information, I select tunes based on the following criteria:

  1. Part of the jazz standard repertoire
  2. Relevance to the theory lessons. Able to incorporate theory topics that we have covered.
  3. Above anything else, the tunes that you - the students - would like to learn!

Please vote below… you can vote for 5 different standards. I will remove them from the list when the lesson has been created.

  • Stardust
  • Skylark
  • Naima
  • Emily
  • Just Friends
  • Manhattan
  • Every Time We Say Goodbye
  • Cry Me A River
  • If I should Lose You
  • The Way You Look Tonight
  • Fly Me To The Moon
  • 500 Miles High
  • Never Let Me Go
  • Georgia On My Mind
  • Satin Doll
  • As Time Goes By
  • Summertime
  • Blue Moon
  • On Green Dolphin Street
  • You Must Believe In Spring

Thanks for the suggestions! The poll can have a maximum of 20 options so I’ve swapped the 2 out that hadn’t received any votes.

I do plan to cover all of these tunes… the poll will help with the order to cover them.

Hey Kim,

Yes we can certainly cover that tune.

Estate should be the next bossa tune we cover - take a listen to Gilberto singing it:

Glad you noticed the video player features! If you remember when I mentioned to you I was frustrated with the issues with the current one, well now I have found a new solution that looks much better, and is much more reliable. It is powered by the same video player but looks slightly different.

The test is working well: https://www.pianogroove.com/video-test/ - now I just need to switch over the embed codes.

ps. don’t panic that play button reappears when pausing the test video, I just need to add a line of code to sort this out. The left-align will also be corrected once the switch takes place.

I’m really happy that with the new solution!! :relaxed:
