I do not understand your question.

Can you please ask again using different words?

 

That was not the most effusive of posts was it Jack, I saw it and assumed coded message to Ped.

Anagram competition anyone :)

We do it in A flat, the tenor player likes it there. First chord in the melody is Fm 9. Good song. 

In the Real Book Sixth Edition it is in A flat.

Song for my father is in F minor. A la the first chord. It’s definitely not a tune in a major key. Ab major and F minor are related keys so have the same key signature (4 flats).

Right you are, the Fm being the relative minor to A flat, same key signature of course. I was just referring to the key signature when I took a quick look at the chart but the song itself is in a minor key, I will try to be more clear next time, your post says what I should have said originally. When we play it we use a vamp over Gm7 as an intro to lead into the melody and that adds to the fun.

We use the Real books and/or iReal Pro in our music but I tend to play the root to 5th for each chord in this song - a little like a Steely Dan’s intro to ‘Ricky don’t lose that number’ - with a little variation around and it seems to work fine.

As has been said by others above.

I'm pretty sure Steely Dan directly took their intro for "Ricky..." from Song For My Father

Or any other bossa style song. There are loads of them.

Indeed, but I think that in this case the other instrumentation etc are also pretty close to Song For My Father so it sounds to me a bit closer than just a general 'style' thing

Steely Dan lifted the Horace Silver vamp 1:1 for that song.
