An example of “The MPR Jazz Ensemble” Song list is below.
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
All of me
All the things you are
Body and soul
Bye bye blackbird
Can’t get started
Cheek to cheek
Come fly with me
Don’t get around much anymore
Don’t worry about me
Drop me off in Harlem
Everything happens to me
Exactly like you
Fly me to the moon
Gee baby ain’t I good to you
Georgia on my mind
Girl from impanima
Have you met Miss Jones
I got rhythm
I love you
I remember you
In a sentimental mood
It had to be you
I've never been in love before
Let there be love
Let’s fall in love
Like someone in love
Lullaby of Birdland
My funny valentine
Night and day
On green dolphin street
One note samba
Our love is here to stay
Softly as a morning sunrise
Someday my prince will come
Song for my farther
Stella by starlight
Takin' a chance on love
Take the A train
What is this thing called love
You made me love you
You make me feel so young
And many more………….......
