Hi Folks,

Below are five reharmonizations of Here's That Rainy Day, beginning with my version; then the standard lead sheet; and then four other versions, each becoming gradually more complex than its predecessor. The last four versions are analyzed with Roman Numerals for syntax and function within each progression. These are not offered as paradigms of musical art, but rather as an introduction to various standard harmonic styles. After studying these, go back and analyze my version at the beginning yourself, should you be so motivated.

Feel free to make comments & ask questions.

Best,
Ed Byrne

Thanks so much for posting this, Ed. Did you record this? (If not, would you recommend a particular recording or two for listening - Bill Evans, Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson, Freddie Hubbard, Chet Baker ?)

I have not recorded this, and I did this study as an exercize in reharmonization. There are many recordings of this tune by a variety of artists, but you're search would be as good as mine.

Hi Ed:

Very interesting treatments here ..

the only thing I found a bit jarring was on the bossa lead sheet version is on beat 2 of the second bar ( where the melody note is Eb ) you indicate an E75b ..did you mean an E MA7 5b ??

Hi Phil,

Thanks for pointing that out. You are quite right! (oops)

Best,
Ed
