It Could Happen To You

Written by Jimmy Ban Heusen and Johnny Burke in 1944 for the musical comedy, And the Angels Sing. This is a great standard that gives you a chance to work on both major and minor ii-V's. The Dexter gordon composition "Fried Bananas" is based on these chord changes.

*Note: Standards are often written with out much "Jazz style". You need to impart the style and "swing" feel by altering the written rhythm through anticipations and other rhythmic alterations.
