'Round Midnight.

I first heard this lovely tune on a LP recording of Steve Race Orchestra titled "Late Race" and wanted to copy the tune and this is the result. Only much later did I hear it played by the composer "Thelonious Monk" who plays it in a very jumpy and irregular fashion which I find very unsettling. Recent checks on Google indicate that this jazz tune has been recorded by over 1700 other performers and is one of the most recorded tunes in the repertoire. I hope you find my interpretation melodious and interesting.

Recorded on my Yamaha HX1 organ. The HX1 was the second, and last, FM synthesis organ Yamaha put out.

The mp3 can be downloaded from here:
