This lovely, spirited jazzy melody would make a great gypsy jazz waltz, don'tcha think?

It might need to be simplified a bit, down to the level of mere flailers and hacks eg yours truly, but I think it could really work.

What do you think?

    Here's what I hear so far... one chord per bar

    Ebmaj7-- D7+--Gm--Gm--Cm7--F7--Bb-Bbmaj7

    A7sus--A7--Dm--Dm/C--Bb6--Cm7--Am7--D7


    That little unexpected Am7 chord is so gorgeous...

    On first glance these changes would seem to be challenging to solo over...?

    This is one of my favorite tunes from one of my favorite movies! One of the first waltzes I learned when I started playing accordion. It's pretty straight forward. I play it like:

    (Gm pickups)--

    Cm--D7--Gm--Gm--Cm--F--Bb--Dm

    Em--A7--Dm9--Cmaj--Bb--Am--D--D

    That was beautiful, Dennis!

    Who did the arrangement for the two violins?

    Have you ever tried to solo over the chords?
