1. Bessie's Blues

From the recording Bessie's Blues

<p>At 36 seconds of playing time, 'Bessie's Blues' by John Coltrane may be the shortest song in the Jazz Songbook.</p>
<p>This fast-tempoed song of four beats per second is a jazz version of a standard 12 bar blues progression.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The drums and piano are pre-programmed and I am playing the live bass.</p>
<p>The track was recorded in one take with minimal post production in an attempt to replicate the classic feel of 1940's and 1950's jazz recordings.&nbsp;</p>
