Noodle Factory Jazz Project
Chameleon is a great chart to get young jazz musicians going on. Once you get that bass line under your fingers, the rest of it is pretty straight forward.
But even if you think you are so sick of the tune that you can never enjoy it again, you might like this recording.
It is sort of a pointillistic impression of the original. All of the things you know about the tune are there and oh so much more. I love how random it seems at the beginning and yet it captures the necessary power and urgency.
Listen and enjoy.
