“I’ll Remember April” is a tune written by Gene De Paul. Published in 1941, it’s first appearance was in the comedy “Ride ‘Em Cowboy”. This tune never ranked high on the pop charts, likely because of its long 48 bar form. Jazz musicians have adopted this song as a standard and it has been recorded and performed my many artists. It’s safe to say that this is an important jam session tune and definitely worth adding to your repertoire. I’ll Remember April is most commonly played in the key of G major by instrumentalists.
