Hi thanks for the links.

But I meant the lead sheet i.e. just the melody and chord symbols. I wanna try and voice the chords myself instead of cheating laugh

This might be a little more expensive than you're looking for...

But that's what I have, and it's in there.

OK, I can now play a (simplified) version of this. Left hand tenths are beyond me smile
But what's the right hand lick at the end of the first section of this song?
Sounds like a blues lick in F major, to me.
Any ideas on this?
Thanks
Mike

Mike, Earl Hines was very good at left hand tenths. I believe it's a Traditional Jazz technique for opening up the chord.
