    Time signature of 5/4 and Key is Gbmajor.
    In my opinion harder to play than it sounds

    I'm playing a rendition of 'favorite things' next week at the Amsterdam conservatory (supporting a lady singer) which is 6/8. While practicing that song together I kept wanting to go 5/4 because I like the feel of 'take five' so much.

    Good luck with gig bro

    The Gbmajor key (6 flats) was troublesome for me.
    Another tune with 6 flats is Thelonius Monk "Round Midnight"
