How do you harmonize a jazz melody?

Harmonization is the process of adding chord accompaniment to a melody. Playing one or more notes with the melody (that is, playing two or more notes at once). One of the best ways people learn to harmonize by ear is by listening to their favorite songs. Whether it's instrumental or vocal, most music has an existing melody.

In your tracks, see if you can identify the melody and harmonies that exist around them.
