Something You Once Said


Lead sheet in concert key. Two pgs incl. cover

A tune that languished without a proper name for decades, Something You Once Said was composed in 1971, and wasn’t given its ‘confirmation name’ until 2012 by bassist Norman Edge. I’m sure aficionados can tell from the bridge that I was working on Woody’n You at the time, but the actual impetus for composition was memorializing the death of the family dog. Apart from one or two blues heads and some chordal meanderings, Something… represents my very first jazz composition.
