I DIG Blues For Alice so much! It has just a quality to it that I cannot explain, but on the other hand I can explain! It has three main parts, in my opinion!

The awesome back-cycling approach to the harmony all inside a wonderful blues format! The killer bebop melody that just flows inside all of the changes.

It is not only KILLER, but also it can teach us so much about how to understand the classic language of Bebop!

And, did I say it? It is a BLUES!

You know I DIG the BLUES and you know by now that it can teach us so much about playing JAZZ!

There is just some serious UMPH! To this classic Jazz Standard!
