Ain't Misbehavin' is a composition of Fats Waller (1904-1943) from 1929 for the night revue Hot Chocolates.
The original recording in the interpretation of Django et le Quintette du Hot Club de France is the YouTube video ""Django Reinhardt - Ain't Misbehavin' - Paris, 22 04 1937". It is also part of various albums, e.g. "Oldies But Goldies Presents Django Reinhardt". In the jazzinotes score the violin of Stéphane Grappelli, the guitar of Django Reinhardt and the double bass of Louis Viola are transcribed note-for-note. In the case of the guitars, the chord symbols result also from the bass line. Sometimes there are small disagreements between the musicians. When determining the chord symbol, a "middle path" was taken, which promises a good-sounding result.
