How Long Blues is one of the first blues tunes my teacher Caroline Dahl taught me, and here I am doing a vocal rendition and piano accompaniment, after listening to a Leroy Carr recording. Leroy Carr (1905-1935), an influential American blues singer, pianist, and composer of songs.

Yancey Special by Jimmy Yancey (1898-1951), a veteran blues and boogie-woogie pianist, influential on the younger Chicago players of the late thirties. Although he wrote and performed compositions in a variety of keys, he ended every tune in E flat.
