Song list

Take the A train
Bye bye blackbird
Autumn leaves
All the things you are
stella by starlight
Bernie's tune
Bouncing with bud
Riders of the storm
It could happen to you
Fly me too the moon
Gee baby ain't I good to you
Four on six
Nature Boy
Pure Imagination
Someday my prince will come
There will never be another you
Hit the road jack
Ain't no sunshine
Banana Split
La vie en rose
A change is gonna come
Love for sale
Walk on by
Cry me a river
Moon river
I believe to my soul
Come rain or come shine
Georgia on my mind
I feel good
I wish
Sir duke
My baby just cares for me
I put a spell on you
Feeling good
My sweet lord
