Here's a two chord wonder. Chord changes for Nat Adderly's Jive Samba. The reason this samba is jive, is that in the first five beats of the Bb7 chords, Adderly uses the riff that was used to mark the punch lines of jokes on the Rowan And Martin Laugh-In comedy program that was on American TV around the time this tune was written.
