A Night in Tunisia

November 9, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Watching the sun set on a crisp fall evening from the comfort of a coffee shop, while listening to Miles Davis’s “A Night in Tunisia”…

Heaven.

I still remember being in middle school and listening to the high school jazz band concert, and they played this song. Gwen, the incredible trumpeter in the band at that time, played this song beautifully, and it instantly became one of my favorite jazz pieces.

 

Edit: Okay, ten minutes later, they’re now playing Dizzy Gillespie’s version of “A Night in Tunisia.” Do I sense Charlie Parker’s rendition coming up next?
