What struck me as a rather melancholy arrangement (by Joe Pass) of “Sunny” – some beautiful voicings in here, creating lots of interesting nuances to exploit when interpreting this arrangement with a loose ballad feel. 4ths tuning.
“Blues” – a jazz guitar chord solo arranged by Joe Pass – trying to make look as easy as Joe does is no mean feat! (Perhaps made a bit more challenging given that I’m playing it in fourths tuning.) Whatever one’s tuning, this is a great piece that offers a lot of dynamic and rhythmic possibilities.

Justin Perdue Quartet live at Ball & Chain Cafe
Briggs Carriage Bookstore,
16 Park Street, Brandon VT 05733
The Justin Perdue Quartet explores the interplay of guitarist Justin Perdue’s modal jazz flights with the post-bop virtuosity of pianist Andrew Moroz – all over the grooves of bassist Jeremy Harlos and drummer and hand percussionist Travis Shores’ intense, multi-layered African, Middle Eastern and jazz rhythms. This adventurous band of seasoned jazzmen delves into everything from Indian ragas to funky soul jazz as they push the envelope of improvisation with their unique repertoire of original compositions.
