Here's another compilation of Ted's arrangement of Gershwin's "A Foggy Day."  The charts I have are in the key of F, and the melodic rhythms are inconsistent, so please forgive me if it's not exactly accurate to what you've heard or played before.  I used the Real Book chart as a guide, but had to make some adjustments in order to fit the words in.  I think it works pretty well.

Ted did a couple arrangements of this tune - this one is in D, he did another more difficult version in Bb that I'll try to make a compilation for at a later date. 

Ted's page is pretty self-explanatory.  Its in what he calls "outline format" which means "You must add some of the missing repeated melody notes" and follow the notation to see if some notes are omitted or different from Ted's grid boxes.  There are a few melodic variations.

Also, Ted didn't write a "1st ending" turnaround - he went straight to the ending.  So, if you want to repeat the piece you'll have to supply your own I-ii-V turnaround.  Or, I'm sure Ted would advocate that instead of a regular turnaround, you do a modulation at the first ending and then repeat the whole thing in another key.  I know he liked moving up (or down) in minor 3rds, so perhaps modulating to F would be nice:  Dmaj7 - Gm7 - C9 --> to top in F.   (I just checked it out, and seems to fall in the hands nicely).
Hope you enjoy this.

Here's a couple of YouTube samples in case you don't know the tune:
 (Sarah Vaughan)
 (Rosemary Clooney - with the song's intro.)
 (FattQ's 'Lick-by-Neck' doing a solo guitar version with walking bass)
 (unknown guitarist)
