    Default West End Blues - Joe “King” Oliver

    West End Blues - Louis Armsstrong


    This chart combines a normal blues and a jazz blues chord progression. I recommend setting the repeat to only one time with how I set this up (mostly due to the repeat at the end of the head out).

    A Section: Normal progression for the Head
    B Section: jazz blues progression for interesting improv (with altered dominants)
    C Section: Normal progression for blues improv (repeats for 24 total bars)
    A Section: Head out (last 4 bars repeat).

    Enjoy!

    Louis Armstrong is the best performer of this song, but the songwriter is Joe Oliver.

    This is the recording whereby Louis Armstrong codified Jazz ~1928. Truly a watershed moment ... Congratulations!
