Chord changes of Denzil Best's Wee. Probably the best known version of this was done by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie at their Massey Hall concert in 1953 in Toronto. Look for the recording "Jazz At Massey Hall" recorded by "The Quintet". Besides the leaders, the quintet for this all-star band included Bud Powell, Charlie Mingus and Max Roach.
