Dindi, slightly modern jazz piano trio treatment...


Antonio Carlos Jobim's Dindi is such a wonderful song. It has melancholy and joy and spice, and the melody is to die for.


Dindi, refers, as Jobim's sister Helena said, to a farm Dirindi, where Antonio spent a lot of time writing songs.


In the B-part, instead of the expected Dominant Altered chord, he writes the mMaj7-chord a half step up. You get, for instance EbmMaj7 instead of D7altered. A nice touch, that you can find in songs like Sno Peas by Bill Markowitz.

I dig that song so much...


You can find the mgu-file (band in a box file) here.


Have fun
