This is a great tune by Cole Porter. It's so congenial with gypsy jazz that I wonder whether Porter wrote it (in 1943) with Django in mind. As for versions, I like Sinatra's from '57, with ... Riddle, or May? Can't remember. At any rate, here's a chart from the changes of that session:

    Oh bollocks, the spacing didn't work out. Well, you get the idea.

    By the way Hal Leonard's "The Best of Jim Hall" (HL00690697) has a great transcription of this tune. The transcription is from Jim Hall's live album "Concierto". Obviously, it isn't gypsy jazz, but it is great guitar music.
