Macaroons

I heard this song on the radio while driving home from a gig last month, and since then I sometimes find myself absent-mindedly humming the melody.  It reminds me a little of 1970s Keith Jarrett, in his happier moods.

Here’s a Tadd Dameron tune written over the changes to “Out of Nowhere”, one of only a few of these contrafacts I know (the others being Fats Navarro’s “Nostalgia”, Ornette Coleman’s “Jayne”, and Lennie Tristano’s “317 East 32nd Street”).  Can you think of others based on this chord progression?
