I keep coming back to this book, there are some really cool tunes in it. I thought tune had kind of calypso feel and was brought to mind by the discussion on African influences.

Real nice, Wes!   Was it written down in the book in F ?

I just bought some early Calypso recordings a couple of weeks ago...coincidence!

Yes, It's in F in the book.

Well I like these sweet old tunes.  They are not too complex but often have an unusual little turn or implied note somewhere that makes them interesting and charming.
