Blues A La Mode Composed by Robert D Vandall. For Piano Solo. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 28194, UPC: 038081307909)

The 6/8 meter of this solo gives it a relaxed feel and compliments the blues s tyle. The E minor tonal center takes on a Dorian modal sound with the use of C # in both the melody and the accompaniment. Block chords and intervals of thir ds and fifths are featured throughout the right-hand melody. The left-hand acc ompaniment is created by a rhythmic ostinato. Written in A-B-A form with a cod a, this fresh-sounding solo is certain to please anyone who enjoys the blues.
