Is this phrase from an already known song?

    Hello! Yesterday I was playing this phrase in a ballad tempo. It sounds like an already known song. I'm new in the trumpet and I'm in serious doubt that it's my "creation" :)

    Can anybody help me identifying the melody?

    Thanks!

    I found a small resemblance with Duke Jordan's "Jordu" (also named "Minor Encamp"):

    A little be off topic (not that I do that too often) but the quintet had a rehearsal yesterday and we read down "Dexterity" by Charlie Parker:
    Charlie Parker Quintet 1947 ~ Dexterity (Master - Take 2) - YouTube

    Eddie (our leader) challenged us during the improve to put quotes into the solo. I chose a more contemporary tune (relatively) to insert, Maria Muldaur's "It Ain't the Meat its the Motion".
    Maria Muldaur - It Ain't the Meat, It's the Motion - YouTube

    The scary thing is, you could play the ENTIRE head of "it Ain't the Meat..." though the complete run of "Dexterity". So my question is, was the writing of "It Ain't the Meat..." done over the changes of "Dexterity"?
    I submit this for your approval.

    Sorry, Gary, I can't open the video of "it Ain't the Meat...": blocked in Europe for reasons of copyright!
    So, for me your question will remain in the TZ!

    This one works, thanks.
    Finally, don't you think the key of the mystery is simply that both tunes are built upon "I got Rhythm" changes?

    IIRC, most bebop era tunes used those same changes.

    Not really. Bebop used a lot of older tunes' chords with modification. Rhythm Changes is only one of those.

    Hot House - What is this thing called love
    Dig - Sweet Georgia Brown
    KoKo - Cherokee
    etc.
