So the computer is just playing a base line based in chords changing by a 5th every 8 beats (the so-called "circle of 5ths" changes).

The melody line just follows the same chord changes as the base line, except with more notes (in the baroque era they called this a "divisions" study).

In a cocktail lounge musicians can play like this on autopilot--since nobody's listening anyway.

that jazzgorithm above must be made for mocktail environments, there are more boppish ones that throw in a rando note every 6 to 11 seconds etc. Cool

ok, "A Night in Tunisia" or "Night in Tunisia" was written by Dizzy Gillespie circa 1941-2 while Gillespie was playing with the Benny Carter Band. It has become a jazzz standard.

It is also known as "Interlude", under which title it was recorded (with lyrics) by Sarah Vaughan (from the EP "Hot Jazz", 1953) and Anita O'Day. Gillespie himself called the tune "Interlude" and says "some genius decided to call it 'Night in Tunisia'". It appears as the title track of 30 CDs and is included in over 500 currently available CDs. In January 2004, The Recording Academy added the Dizzy Gillespie & his Sextet’s 1946 Victor recording to its Grammy Hall of Fame.

"Night in Tunisia" was one of the signature pieces of Gillespie's bebop big band, and he also played it with his small groups.

Gillespie said the tune was composed at the piano at Kelly's Stables in New York. Strangely, on his live album A Night at Birdland Vol. 1, Art Blakey introduces his cover version with this statement: "At this time we'd like to play a tune that was written by the famous Dizzy Gillespie. I feel rather close to this tune because I was right there when he composed it in Texas on the bottom of a garbage can." The audience laughs, but Blakey responds, "Seriously." The liner notes say, "The Texas department of sanitation can take a low bow."

Gillespie gave Frank Paparelli co-writer credit in compensation for some unrelated transcription work, however Paparelli actually had nothing to do with the song.

The complex bass line in the "A section" is notable for avoiding the standard walking bass pattern of straight quarter notes, and the use of oscillating half-step-up/half-step-down chord changes (using the Sub V) gives the song a unique, mysterious feeling. The B section is notable for having an unresolved minor II-V, since the chord progression of the B section is taken from the B section of the standard "Alone Together, " causing the V chord to lead back into the Sub V of the A section. Like many of Gillespie's tunes, it features a short written introduction and a brief interlude that occurs between solo sections — in this case, a twelve-bar sequence leading into a four-bar break for the next soloist.

One of its most famous performances is Charlie Parker's recording for Dial soap. The tune also became closely identified with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, who often performed it.
