Local Auckland band ‘Blue Train’ plays ‘Combover Blues’ (something I can relate to HA!) – an original composition by Steve Sherriff.
In this line up ‘Blue Train’ are Steve Sherriff – Tenor Sax, Alan Brown – Piano, Cameron MacArthur -Acoustic Bass, Jason Orme – Drums and Dixon Nacey – Guitar.
Another great jam with these talented jazz muso’s from Auckland New Zealand. This tune, a Blues in A minor, presents the improviser with a few surprise chords at the end of the form (see the last 4 bars of the melody transcription provided) – lots of dominant sevenths:
E7 – F7 – D7 – C7 for two beats each and then a Bb7 to an Ab7 for one bar (4 beats) each.
