Gipsy-like piano music (with sheet music)

A few days ago I recorded this :

I am aware that the piano has a most un-gipsic sound, but I never had the courage to learn guitar, so I am trying to bring the wonderful repertory of gipsy jazz to my favorite instrument. As I have been asked for the sheet music, I wrote a transcription :

Une Routine Manouche (sheet music)

For the fun I placed this piece of music under a Creative Common licence, which basically lets you free to do whatever you want with it, even make money ( but don’t be too confident about that ! ), without needing my permission.  All I ask is that you cite a certain “A. de la Marmotte” as the author, so that I can google it in ten years and see what has become of my little routine.

In case you are wondering, I edited the music with the free software Lilypond, which is somehow an equivalent of LaTeX for sheet music.  If you want to modify the score, here is the source file I wrote (copy it in a file like “myFile.ly” and run with Lilypond):
