The well loved standard appeared in 1931, and like many another pop song of that period, it only really entered the jazz repertoire during the modern era. This version is based on Thelonious Monk’s arrangement, which he first recorded with a trio in 1952, and returned to many times throughout his career. In fact Monk’s trio version may have been the first modern jazz recording, and it is certainly unique, with those chromatically descending 7th’s all through the first four bars.
