Day Jobs standards list

This weekend has been packed with gigs and other mayhem, so instead of writing something, I think I'll just post another bit of Day Jobs history (which is mainly only interesting to me, but you'll survive). Here's our song list of jazz standards (without our original tunes), although I'm sure we added a few more over time. It's fun for me to read this list, because I can remember the ones I liked to play, the ones that were a little boring, the ones that got the best crowd response, and so on. I'm still playing a few of these today with Casa del Swanko, but it sure would be fun to go back in time with the Day Jobs, wear our suits, and kick out a few of these at the Speakeasy again!
