    Roy Hargrove " I Remember Clifford" Can't put much more feeling into a song than he does on flugel.

    "I Remember Clifford" and "Blue" (written by Bobby Shew)
    Two wonderful tributes to amazing trumpet players.

    There are SO many great versions of this song out there. Look for the Janis Joplin version (I think it was off of Cheap Thrills).

    "Blue in Green" is my favorite bit of Jazz romance. I also like to play a soft and slow version of Monk's "Reflections".

    There's a talented little indie duo on youtube called Pomplamoose who do a bewitching piano/vocals/bass version of Nature Boy. Highly recommended.
