Description

A Blues for Captain Slow.

Sometimes life just gets too hectic and slowing down, just a little, to smell the roses is well worth it - even if we just slow the tempo down to a medium swing!

So here is Captain Slow, a blues swing in the key of F major, for pianists who enjoy jazz and are at about the Grade 4 (ABRSM) standard.

This piece is a kind of 'half-time' blues over 24 bars, rather than the usual 12 bar format. It also features an improvisation section, but don't panic... There is a written solo which you can always repeat and maybe even tweak here with your own interpretation!

Captain Slow is not actually that slow, being more of a medium swing, but if you would like to practice it at a reduced tempo check out the practice playalong MP3, which comes with the sheet music,

Of course, this blues piano sheet music is best enjoyed with the cool playalong jazz backing track.
