Changes for Django, composed by John Lewis. This was a musical elegy for the great jazz guitarist Django Rheinhardt. It was a signature piece for the Modern Jazz Quartet, for which Lewis was the musical director and pianist. MJQ did many great recordings of the tune. Tete Montoliu does an awesome version of Django on his recording "Songs for Love".
