Rose Room Goodman 1967
Benny Goodman and the art of improvising.
In this clip Benny explains that often two different melodies can be played over the same set of chords. He suggests Rose Room and In a Mellowtone.
Funny, maybe I have heard and seen this Benny clip before, but lately I have been doing this as well with my Kelowna band. We do this in Ab, and yes...Benny does that as well.
Of course Ab is more or less the standard key for Rose Room, so...it all make sense
