Here we have a typical minor blues in all 12 keys. Few chord progressions offer the freedom and variety of expression found in the minor blues progression. Great players have all approached this chord progression in a variety of ways. Often, they attack each chord vertically in its pure form or play horizontally across the progression, usually with a blues or minor pentatonic scale. Some take all or part of the changes harmonically "out."
Rhythm Section: Rob Schneiderman (p); Rufus Reid (b); Akira Tana (d).
