1. Summer Nights

From the recording Summer Nights

The Title Track off our first CD! This one was actually written as an exercise to teach students how to improvise over changes in different keys. when thinking of songs for Deborah to sing, I liked the easy bossa quality, similar to Jobim...the song is not nearly as harmonically elaborate as a Jobim composition but it just has that quality to my ears, tempo, romanticism, etc.
