All Blues

all blues

Following on from my post about ‘So What’ I thought I’d post a lead sheet for the Miles Davis tune ‘All Blues’.  A blues, but not in your average 12 bar format, this tune is in 6/8.  This song is great for those starting out at playing jazz. The original recording on ‘Kind of Blue’ is so iconic it is often played as an exact copy.

I’ve notated the riff in two positions and also the melody in single note and octave form.
