| A foggy day                                      A house is not a home

All the things you are                    Almost like being in love

Am I blue?                                        Anything goes

At last                                                Autumn in New York

Autumn Leaves                               Beautiful love

Bewitched                                        Black Coffee

Black Orpheus                                 Blue Moon

Blue Skies                                         Born under a bad sign

Bye bye blackbird                           Call me irresponsible

Cry me a river                                  Day in day out

Days of wine and roses                 Don’t get around much anymore

Dream a little dream of me          Embraceable you

Fever                                                  For once in my life

Girl from Ipanema                          Good morning heartache

Harlem nocturne                            How about you

How high the moon                       How insensitive

I could write a book                       I got rhythm

I say a little prayer                          I should care

It don’t mean a thing                     In a sentimental mood

Route 66                                           Satin Doll

The thrill is gone                             Moondance

My funny valentine                        Stormy Monday
