I’m Not Supposed to Be Blue Blues

Here’s a song I first heard on Anita O’Day and Cal Tjader’s Time for Two album.  Teddi King recorded the song as well, and this lead sheet is a mashup of the two versions.  The phrasing of the melody here is closer to Anita’s version, but she stretches the bridge out to sixteen bars.  The form isn’t a twelve-bar blues, but the A sections follow the same harmonic path (first to the four chord, then a turnaround back to one).
