    Cantaloupe Island, Green Onions and Take Five. This is my big three for a good start to the day.

    Honestly one of the best jazz pieces I've ever heard. We're playing this in my jazz standards band at school and I have the piano part. I have the triads memorized but the actual written chords are difficult to play on my right hand since my hands are small lol.

    BUT STILL, this is the best piece of jazz I have heard of all of 2019 so far (10 years after this video was posted lol)

    He estado esperando oír lo de "funky, funky", pero no lo han dicho en ningún momento, y me extraña.
