“Afternoon In Paris” was written by pianist, composer and arranger John Lewis. Most commonly played in C major, this tune cycles through a couple different key centers (Bb, Ab), making this a fun tune to improvise on. Be sure to listen to multiple different recordings to get a sense of how it is played. Note that often the bridge pedals on a concert G during the head, excluding the last two bar turnaround.
