so i was on a gig with a bone player friend of mine who now lives/plays in nyc.  he brought some charts, one of which had a 32 bar open solo section labeled "rose room changes"  not one of us, including him, knew what it meant. lol  he thought maybe it was a ny thing.  since we had no rehearsal when we got to that section, the bass player and i fumbled around a bit and  ended playing the changes from "in a mellow tone" and all went pretty well.  upon further investigation, we discovered that "mellow tone" was actually based on the changes from a tune named "rose room" ha!  whooda thunk it?

anyway, fyi rose room changes = in a mellow tone changes
