Monday Music Quote: Stan Getz

"It’s like a language. You learn the alphabet, which are the scales. You learn sentences, which are the chords. And then you talk extemporaneously with the horn. It’s a wonderful thing to speak extemporaneously, which is something I’ve never gotten the hang of. But musically I love to talk just off the top of my head. And that’s what jazz music is all about." -- Stan Getz

Here is some information that is available online and so important to know.



Each chord is described as a series of intervallic relationships to the root of the chord. This provides an accurate and easily understandable basis for working out these chords in each key.
The terms used to describe intervals are as follows:

One of my all time favorite songs that was tops on the charts in 1964, The Girl from Ipanema!

Here is the chord chart. I just love the gentle groove of bossa nova music. How about you?

Tall and tan and young and lovely, 
the girl from Ipanema goes walking 
    Gm7                   F#7                    Fm7   F#7
and when she passes, each one she passes goes...'aaaah.'
When she walks, she's like a Samba 
that swings so cool and sways so gentle,
     Gm7                   F#7                    Fm7
that when she passes, each one she passes goes...'aaaah.'

F#+7      F#7          C9
Oh, but I watch her so sadly,
F#m7                 D9           
how can I tell her I love her? 
Gm                         Gm7
Yes, I would give my heart gladly...
         Am7                        Dm7-5
But each day, when she walks to the sea, 
    Gm7                          F#
she looks straight ahead, not at me. 
Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely, 
the girl from Ipanema goes walking, 
    Gm7                F#7                    Fm7
and when she passes, I smile..but she doesn't see.
F#7                             Fm7  F#7
No,she doesn't see, she doesn't see.
She just doesn't see.
