Strange Feeling

 

Hi everyone, I didn’t mean to go two months without posting, but I’ve been dealing with the rule of entropy recently.  After having a busy few weeks mostly away from home, I dealt with a broken piano, a vacation, a computer crash, and now my Finale program doesn’t work with my new OS, so I’m back to transcribing with pen and paper.  I even had to buy a new printer just to scan this lead sheet.  I have no plans to stop posting though, so stay tuned.

Strange Feeling is a pretty Billy Strayhorn song.  I’ve heard two versions of the song, one by Strayhorn himself and one by the Ellington orchestra.  This lead sheet is based on the solo piano version, which is played rubato so I’ve only approximated the the rhythms.
