“My Little Suede Shoes” is a very catchy, lyrical tune. It’s one of the most accessible tunes Bird wrote. Many of his tunes had angular melodies that some people unaccustomed to bebop have a tough time following (not you or I, of course, but some listeners have a tough time with bebop. Try singing Donna Lee…). However, this is a good melody that even non-jazz audiences will enjoy. It can be played with a swing or latin feel, as you will hear on the YouTube recordings.
