WC Handy (Arr. Blutman) - Jogo Blues

WC Handy's 1913 Jogo Blues is arranged for trumpet and piano by Michael Blutman in a playable arrangement that is enjoyable for both the teacher and student!  Perfect for recitals and performances by intermediate through professional trumpeters.

Early blues compositions, like Jogo Blues are to be performed "straight", not "swung" as in later jazz tunes.  The syncopation in the piece combines the blues language that Mr. Handy observed in his travels through the South with the Ragtime rhythms of the popular tunes of the day.  Enjoy!
