Artist: Julie London
Song: Cry Me a River
Year: 1955
With a potential Jazz acoustic session fast approaching I was surprised to find only one 
version of free music tablature on the World Wide Web for such a famous Jazz Classic! 
So I decided to upload the following arrangement.
Please note that this is “Jazz” so the following is only a guide. You are therefore 
expected to experiment with different chord inversions and passing notes and chords, slides 
etc to make the song your own, whilst still remaining faithful to the original song.
Pay very careful attention to timing, dynamics, tone production from right hand and most 
of all the full depth of emotion the piece has to offer. It’s a beautiful song, so I 
hope you have lots of fun. Cheers.
