New Music Monday: Tap Solo Songs!

Do you have a student who can't keep his or her feet from flying?  Try these super-quick songs:
  • "Airmail Special" (Nikki Yanofsky) iTunes Live from Montreal - Nikki Yanofsky
  • "Bumble Boogie" (Freddie Martin) Bumble Boogie - Big Band Bash

More Jazz Tunes
  • "Frim Fram Sauce" (Diana Krall) Frim Fram Sauce - The Very Best of Diana Krall - A great soft shoe song - Diana Krall's voice and the slow jazz music are perfectly suited for some tapping on top.  Just make sure your soloist has the stage presence to pull off this slower number.
  • "This Can't Be Love" (Stacey Kent) In Love Again - Stacey Kent - Enjoy Diana Krall?  Check out Stacey Kent for some other lovely tappable female jazz vocals.
  • "Steppin' Out" (Tony Bennett) Steppin' Out With My Baby - The Ultimate Tony Bennett- perfect for a male tap solo

Fresh Tap Music

  • "Blue Jeans" (Jessie James) Blue Jeans - Jessie James- a nice sassy song for a teen - lots of great rhythm
  • "Tightrope (Goodwill Remix)" (Janelle Monae)Tightrope (Remixes) - Janelle Monáe- I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of this song this year, so here are a few remixes

Character & Show Tunes
  • "Miss Otis Regrets" (Bette Midler) Experience the Divine - Greatest Hits (Deluxe Version) - Bette Midler - A classic for someone with lots of personality!  Could also work as a duet or trio
  • "Dimples" (Little Me) Little Me (The New Broadway Cast Recording) - Little Me (The New Broadway Cast Recording) - a cute little song
  • "Supercalifragilisticexpialicious" (Harry Connick Jr.) Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - Songs I Heard - love his cover of this song
