Remembering Stan...

In 1952 Stan Getz did a live recording of a tune he wrote called "SWEETIE PIE" in one of the jazz clubs in NYC. and I believe it's the only one he did on this tune. What I'm looking for is the chord structure on it. It sounds like a combination of Honeysuckle Rose and another tune like "SWEET SUE"on the bridge. Stan really swings on this one. Give me a buzz if anybody has some info on this song. Thank's and stay well.

Doing a little searching on the internet I came up with this Info: (if your interested).

"SWEETIE PIE"  1934, music by John Jacob Loeb, lyrics by Fats Waller.

Just listen to young Stan on this one.

Thank's again

Hi Ray,

Luckily we have three "live" recorded versions of Sweetie Pie. As far as I know.
The first one is at Birdland on Nov 13 1952 ,the second one at Carnegie Hall on the next day Nov 14 1952 and finally the third one on March 8 1953 at the Hi-Hat club in Boston.
 
I think the chord changes are based on "Avalon"

All these versions are incredible.

Hi Denis,

Thank's for the info on that tune. Right now I'm checking out the "AVALON" chords and see if it matches.

Thank's again
