This song It is also known as “Interlude”. Gillespie called the tune “Interlude” and said “some genius decided to call it ‘Night in Tunisia'”. He said the tune was composed at the piano at Kelly’s Stables in New York. Interlude. Twelve bar sequence. The complex bass line in the “A section” is notable for avoiding the standard walking bass pattern of straight quarter notes, and the use of oscillating half-step-up/half-step-down chord changes (using the Sub V) gives the song a unique, mysterious feeling. The B section is notable for having an unresolved minor II-V, since the chord progression of the B section is taken from the B section of the standard “Alone Together, ” causing the V chord to lead back into the Sub V of the A section. Like many of Gillespie’s tunes, it features a short written introduction and a brief interlude that occurs between solo sections — in this case, a twelve-bar sequence leading into a four-bar break for the next soloist.

Lyrics: The moon is the same moon above you A glow in its cool evening light The stars are aglow in Tunisia Never does it shine so bright The cares of the days seem to vanish The ending of day brings release Each wonderful night in Tunisia Where the nights are filled with peace. The stars are aglow in heavens But only the wise understand That shining tonight in Tunisia They guide you through descent sand And words fail to tell a tale exoticto be taid Each night’s a deeper night in a worldages old The cares of the world seem to vanish The ending of day brings release Each wonderful night in Tunisia Where the nights are filled with peace.
