Monday Music Quote: Thinking With Sounds

Monday Music Quote

 "Music is the art of thinking with sounds."  Jules Combarieu


 I believe Bette Midler and Peggy Lee have sung this song before. I'm talking about Alright, Okay, You Win, written by Sid Wyche and Mayme Watts in 1955. It's a moderate rhythm and I've posted the chords for you here from my Jazz Book, The Best Big Band Songs Ever.
