Mediation is a nice bossa nova. I like the tune, but it’s connected to a painful experience for me. The first time it was called on me I was playing piano with trumpet player Carl Saunders at a jam session. I didn’t know the tune at the time (or a couple others he called), and I was pretty embarrassed. I’m a big fan of Carl, and I wanted him to respect my playing. I vowed to learn a ton of standards, and the result is this website!

This tune is played most commonly in the key of C.
