SWEET POTATO PIE (based on SWEET GEORGIA BROWN)
An instantly popular song in its day, "Sweet Georgia Brown" has been played constantly and in a myriad of styles in the 90 years since. For The Reality Book, Brent Jensen wrote "Sweet Potato Pie" as a New Orleans ‘Second Line’ groove contrafact - combining this time-honored traditional tune with one of the original jazz grooves makes this a must-learn-must-play part of any musicians development. Known around the world since 1952 as the theme song for the Harlem Globetrotters, "Sweet Georgia Brown" has enjoyed as much staying power as any tune in the standard jazz repertoire.
