    "Night Train" CD - Oscar Peterson Trio with Ray Brown on bass. All jazz blues played by one of the great walking bass masters.

    You mean the:
    I-IV-I-I-IV-IV-I-Major VI-II-V-I-Major VI-II-V-I

    or in other words in the Key of 'A' would look like:
    A-D-A-A-D-D-A-F#-B-E-A-F#-B-E-A (the last 5 changes are the 'turnaround', or the bounce, how we call it)

    Hope that helps somewhat?!? There are so many Jazz Standards with this change it's too hard to list..."All Blues" in Bb...Miles Davis

    I have a couple of youtube videos on this...type coachg1000 in there, and I'll completely baffle you with my lack of skill...

    "Summertime" (Summertime, and the livin's easyyyy...) is a great song..Not real 12 bar Jazz Blues, but it has elements of it. It's really simple and fun to play...The Sublime version ain't bad either..slighty different however..:D
