A SLOW AND FAST BLUES explores the blues feeling in two different tempos. The slow mournful opening features the bass, then the guitar, in melodic statements. Contrasting up-tempo moments punctuate the blues feeling. It slows down and speeds up, again and again, before ending with an old fashioned kick-butt shout chorus.

Solos for tenor, trumpet and piano.

As performed by the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra.
