Jazzing it up!

The last week I’ve been busy with a free five day course in jazz with Heidi Krenn. That was both joyful and interesting, and I think I learned a lot. I even tried out a bit of scatting.
Honeysuckle Rose by “Fats” Waller was the song we were working with.

For some reason I came up with the idea of recording the song, and did a quick draft with some basic piano, bass, drums and song. So far it’s just three choruses and one bridge, and no scatting (yet). Here’s what it sounds like so far.

Honeysuckle Rose short draft

I need to do a better intro, a bit longer, and maybe add some instruments and an ending, if I continue with the recording. What do you think? Continue or scrap?
