Louisian-I-A – Dr. Michael White
One of the best jazz songs I’ve heard (that’s probably because it’s from New Orleans). It sounds like a very old recording, but actually it dates back only to 2000, when a superb album “A Song for George Lewis” was released with this number on it. The chords are based around the circle of fifths, but doesn’t end there. I recommend you to hear it for yourselves.
