Afternoon in Paris

"Afternoon in Paris" is a 1949 jazz standard. It was written by John Lewis.[1]

"Afternoon in Paris" has a 32-bar AABA form and is usually played in the key of C major. In several of the song's phrases, the tonal center changes (when played in C, there is a shift to B and A), defining a complex harmonic structure that is of interest to both theoreticians and soloists.[2][3]
