Ebony Moonbeams

Here’s a George Cables tune I like to play live.



This song is also an example of how misleading some fake books can be.  The first time I heard the tune it was clear to me the head was in 4/4, but in my “JazzLTD” book it’s a daunting mess of time signatures.  Just looking at it would probably put me off playing this lovely tune.

Of course my charts aren’t exact transcriptions, but my problem with most fake books is that they charge people money for lead sheets that are barely legible and full of obvious mistakes.
