I thank Brendan for asking me to host The Tune Of The Month.
This tune had been written by someone called "Bird", not because he could fly but because he could eat a whole chicken.
His real name was Charles Christopher Parker (1920-1955), I think some people know a bit about him.
The tune is Blues For Alice : who is Alice ?
The structure is a 12 bar blues, but not a conventional one.
In France we call it "blues suédois", that means "Sweden blues", I personally call it "hypertonal blues".
These are the charts, for C Bb Eb instruments and some backing tracks.

Sure, you can find other backing tracks, or create some.
I hope you like it.
This is the version I really love from Roland Kirk : https://youtu.be/7tVX2EmcvV0
