This is a jazz tune in the key of D-minor. There’s one flat in the key signature and the eighth notes should be swung. The intro has a low bass line that descends underneath syncopated right hand chords. The main melody is introduced at measure 9. The left hand triads should be played with a light, staccato touch. We go to the key of G-minor temporarily at measure 25 with tight chords in the right hand and what’s known as a pedal bass. Things continue on in a similar way until measure 49. This last section should have some punch, so play things a little louder here. Starting at measure 52, you should gradually slow things down and fade out.
