The first 200 words of this essay...
ALL BLUES - MILES DAVIS
All Blues is a member of pieces from 'Kind of Blue'. There are five pieces, entitled All Blues, Blue in Green, So What, Freddy Freeloader and Flamenco Sketches. The recording features Miles Davis on trumpet, Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley on alto sax, John Coltrane on tenor sax, and a rhythm section made up from Paul Chambers, James Con, Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly. This piece comes from the era of 'cool' jazz, around the mid 1930s to 1940s.
This piece is written in G major, in 6/8, but sometimes has the feel of 3/4. The piece starts with a 4 bar piano introduction trill. This then leads on to the head, which is 4 bars of sax and then 12 bars of trumpet over the top. The head is played twice, and then there is a trumpet solo for 48 bars, with a 4 bar turnaround. Next is a tenor sax solo for 12 bars and then alto sax for 36 bars. A 4 bar piano turnaround and then a 48 bar tenor sax solo follow this. There is another turnaround and then a 24 bar piano solo. Turnaround, and then the head comes in
