Hi All,
Vaughan has asked me to choose this months tune, so my choice is 'You Don't Know What Love Is'.

Again, a very big thanks to Chris for providing the backing track and dots.

There are two backings one @62 with x2 choruses and 4 bar intro, plus one @121 with x4 choruses and 4 bar intro, there are simple Bb sheet embellished Bb and Eb sheet.

Here's the link to my box account for anyone that needs the tracks.

I've got visitors here for the next 10 days so may not be able to record my version immediately, but I'll get to it as soon as possible.

God. it`s such a lovely number

I`m a total sucker for about anything I hear Chet doing so I think I`ll enjoy this after I manage to get the water works turned off.

Great tune - I've enjoyed playing this one for many years, but doubt I'll record it as my recording efforts are so rubbish! :(

Excellent choice Di! I can't believe I've never played it before.

Coltrane, Miles, Chet, Dolphy... but undoubtably the best for me is Rollins' rendition on either Saxophone Colossus or Work Time, can't remember which album right now :)

This tune along with the Gary Burton Improv course is going to keep me busy this month! >:)

I'm going to try with my Shure mic once I get a xlr to usb lead, hopefully might improve the quality of my recordings....

It has been for 3 months that I discovered the ballad of the month and it will be for the 3rd month that I will have the opportunity to learn a tune that is not in my listening list. Well, the other 2 entered in my list because I loved them....
I am sure this will be another one...!
personal challenge mode on...!
Hope that by the middle of the month I can come up with something shareable....

Cheers!

Just found this lovely version....
Costello's voice to these ballads is very nice....
Mr. Baker doesn't need any comments..... (although he deserves many...) ;}

Firstly what a great choice for BOTM.
This tune is new to me but I wanted to get a couple of straight up takes done.
Often these quick takes have something fresh about them.
Not sure what time this works better in so here's one of each.
Tried to get a bit fancy in the later part of the faster take which didn't really pay off.

@ B Flat - the 1st slower version is by far more comfortable both from a playing side and as a listener, sounds like you are missing a lot of the subtle chord changes in the faster version and end up falling back to pentatonic patterns, i am sure you will easily be able to play the faster changes in time 'cos i hear an energy bursting through your playing striving to connect with the faster version and the changes. There seems as whole better flow and comfort on the 1st version, nice and smooth.

Great choice Di, a beautiful tune and loads of great versions on YouTube. I've discovered some new ones posted on here - thanks everyone and Colin I loved the marmite one!

Nick, I listened to your takes and found the slower one very soulful and expressive. I thought the faster version worked too (I agree with your sentiments from about 3 minutes for a few bars), although I think I prefer the slower take.
