From the Real Little Ultimate Jazz Fake Book, Hal Leonard

My Favorite Things
Words by Oscar Hammerstein II
Music bt Richard Rogers
© 1958 by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II, copright renewed.


F#m7
Rain - drops on roses and whiskers on kittens

DM7
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Bm7            E9         AM7          DM7
Brown pap - er pack-a-ges tied up with strings

AM7         DM7       G#m7b5
These are a few of my fav    - o - rite things


F#m7
Cream col - ored ponies and crisp apple strudles

DM7
Door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

Bm7            E9         AM7          DM7
Wild geese that fly with the moon on the wings

AM7         DM7       G#m7b5
These are a few of my favorite things

F#M7 (2 measures)

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

BM7
Snow flakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Bm7             E0             AM7         DM7
Sil - ver white win - ters that melt in the spring

AM7         DM7       G#m7b5         C#7b9

I hope that's fairly accurate. I had to scan it and print 2x to read any of it - old eyes ain't what they used to be.

(If you copy and paste, change to monospaced font like Courier to keep spacing.)

Key signature A major (3#). 3/4 time of course.

I've never liked this song, and that's down to Julie Andrews' very "proper" singing voice. Come to think of it, I can't recall hearing it performed by any other well-known artist; however, it has a great tune and well crafted words. I would have liked to hear Johnny Cash sing it!

Nice example of manual dyslexia from JohnInKansas. I trust it didn't pass unnoticed.

Tunesmith, there is a VERY well-known, and very excellent, jazz instrumental recording of this song by one John Coltrane. It's the title cut of a famously classic album.

I wouldn't imagine that the average Brit folkie would dig (i.e.,enjoy and understand) the extended improvisatory post-bop modern-jazz passages, but the eloquent manner in which 'Trane "states" the basic melody to begin and end the piece should be accessible to any musician's ear, and might well suggest an alternative way to approach singing this old chestnut.

If some record-selling website provides a brief MP3 snippet of the opening passage of this piece, you might find it interesting. All you need is the first repetition or two of the verse (30-40 seconds should be plenty); the rest of the cut would not be immediately relevant to your needs and interests anyway.

PoppaGator: I do know the John Coltrane tune; infact, I'm learning the sax at the moment. I really can't get into Trane, though. His "lapses" into bad taste ( e.g. making strange noises that don't seem to add anything to the tune) bother me. I love earlier players, especially Lester Young and Charlie Parker

A stellar video of John Coletrane performing My Favorite Things can be found on Youtube. I rather enjoy 'Trane's "lapses", although I wonder if you are confusing John's playing with Pharoh Sanders, who specialized in producing overtones in his playing.

Is it a big jump to move from John Coltrane
to Betty Carter?
Here she is live, with her trio.

WARNING: scat singing in between choruses.
I think it's brilliant but it may not be to everyone's taste.
