Charlie Parker – Donna Lee

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Donna Lee” is a bebop tune written by Mile Davis. It is written over the same changes as the great standard “Indiana”. Written in 1947, it was first recorded with the Charlie Parker Quintet, which has led some to confuse it as Charlie Parker’s composition rather the Davis’.(
